What is ab/normality? What are the various ways of thinking that something or someone is ab/normal? What is the relation between the concepts of ab/normality and the institutions, practices and forms of social organization at work in a given society? These are some of the questions that we will address in this writing-heavy course, modulating them through different types of ab/normality (e.g. statistical, biological, psychological, social, ethical and aesthetic), and relying on a wide range of authors: Kant, Freud, Canguilhem, de Beauvoir, Foucault, Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler, Charles Mills, Linda Alcoff, Donna Haraway, Andrea Long Chu).
