Week 12 intersections of Disability and Gender (part two) 1. Instruction: This week, please write thick responses to two questions of the following questions with quotes. Please make sure you engage with the reading by quoting, citing, paraphrasing, then making comments about it specifically. On one page•Deborah Kent (1987). Disabled women: Portraits in fiction and drama. In: Images of the Disabled, Disabling Images. Ed. Alan Gartner and Tom Joe. New York: Praeger.In this article Kent covers many examples of literary characters who are women with disabilities–two dozen by my count. One issue she keeps coming back to is the relationships that these women have–or more often cannot have–with men. (We discussed this a bit last week in connection with the Yellow Wallpaper literature.) Kent writes:Frequently, the man feels he will be diminished in the eyes of others if he can only acquire a substandard partner. If on the other hand the man finds the disabled woman attractive, it is because her disability draws him to her, making her mysterious, heroic, or appealingly vulnerable. In either case, disability looms as an overwhelming issue for the men in most of these works. They may be repelled of attracted to the disabled woman, or struggle with both feelings at once. But the woman’s disability is nearly always seen as her first and most salient attribute. (Kent 1987: 56-57, emphasis added).1. Kent uses The Glass Menagerie as one of her many examples (pp. 51-52). To what extent would you say that this text fits in with the hypothesis quoted above? Explain your opinion.Kent points out that most literary representations do not reflect the variety of experiences of real-life women with disabilities: “Those who lead satisfying lives, thoroughly integrated into the community, are rarely found in literature. By failing to offer more positive images, these writers help perpetuate the negative stereotypes the present” (p. 62).2. Do you find Kent’s assessment of disabled literary women in terms of the negative imagery persuasive and/or compelling? How much does her autobiographical approach to the topic add to the article’s effectiveness?2.Instruction: Write two pages for the proposal for: THE ROLE OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES WORKING AS CRITICS OF THE ARTS FROM AFRICAIt is should be 1-2 pages longThe Final Project for this course is your opportunity to apply some of the concepts we’ve explored this semester to your original research. Your topic must relate to the humanities (broadly defined), using a disability studies approach. Because it is a significant assignment that represents a significant portion of your final grade, the assignment is segmented over the final weeks of the semester. Here are some things to include in your final project proposal:•A working title for your project (descriptive but not neccesarily final);•A working thesis statement (at least a sentence, no more than a paragraph);•A fairly detailed description of what form your project will take (a 15-20 page essay, a multimedia presentation, something else entirely); and•A working bibliography, annotated if possible (3-5 sources are recommended).but in this case running over is better than coming up short. Use APA or MLA style according to your personal convictions.3.Instruction: Read the comments from my professor before you write the 2 page proposal for the final project for: THE ROLE OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES WORKING AS CRITICS OF THE ARTS FROM AFRICAComment from my professor Hi Agnes:This is a really interesting topic. I wrote much of the following below also on the Discussion board in response to your post. Let’s talk more through these questions if you are wanting to expand on this for the Final Project. But, because it is “Humanities” you want to include any of the following–poem, actual photographic or art images, quotes from authors about the themes you mention, voice recordings? Please meet with me during regular Student Hours on Collaborate or email me to set up a time for a phone consult if you need further help.Here is what I wrote:I am wondering if you included photovoice recordings or if you listened to some in order to craft this? I am not seeing them here, but I would be so fascinated to see or hear them.Also, in your topic areas–“…as a mode of activism” and “sexuality” can you think of specific visual examples that you might be able to share? This would illuminate the points you are making so tremendously.Finally, when you write that virtual art and photography encourage negativity toward sexuality, what is the source? Is this your own experience? Is this the case in all African countries? And, what kinds of celebrities are changing attitudes? There again, if you have pictures, that would give so much texture.I am interested to read and see more. Will you expand upon this for your final project?Below is what I wrote for my field project: Will attach it THE ROLE OF PEOPLE WITH DI
