Encountering Disability in German Culture
AATG Panel, Orlando, Nov 21-23rd, 2008
 
Although long a mainstay in other fields, disability rarely appears as a
theme in German language curricula. In the wake of Carol Poorešs 2007
monograph Disability in Twentieth Century German Culture, this session aims
to introduce and explore teaching strategies and materials for addressing
disability in German literature and culture. The presentations will discuss
pedagogical approaches to and courses and lesson plans on German cultural
texts (including but not limited to literature, film, art, television,
websites, and music) that directly thematize mental or physical disability.
Abstracts based on all levels of German, from beginning and intermediate
language to upper level literature and culture courses, are welcome. Email
abstracts (250 words maximum) to Morgan Koerner by December 21st, 2007.
