Edited by Lynn Schlesinger (Plattsburgh State University of New York) and Diane Taub (Southern Illinois University-Carbondale). To be published Summer 2003, by the American Sociological Association Teaching Resources Center
The American Sociological Association Teaching Resources Center invites submissions to its revised Instructional Materials for Sociology and Disability Studies. Materials may include but are not limited to: syllabi, course outlines, handouts, exercises, assignments, reviews of relevant materials (books, films, etc.), essays on disability studies and pedagogy, or any other written material relevant to the inclusion of disability-related issues in teaching sociology. The first edition included syllabi for a variety of courses that integrated disability studies throughout the curriculum (e.g., Introduction to Sociology, Sociological Methods), as well as courses that focus primarily on disability (e.g., Sociology of Disability, Gender and Disability). We are particularly interested in materials that deal with disability from a global perspective, and/or that examine disability in relation to other social characteristics (e.g., class, race, sexual orientation, age). International submissions are welcome, in addition to materials from the U.S. Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2002.
