This panel considers disability studies as a foundational discourse for engaging the socially and culturally expressed nature of the human being. It will address how questions of dis/ability are fundamental to or paradigmatic for conceiving what counts as human, what is acceptable for humans to do, what permits access to material and ideological value, and other matters that depend on how human existence is articulated. We will see how these issues emerge in literary texts and other cultural documents, including in various media and criticism.
