Gender and Disability in German Art, Policy, and Culture

CfP: NeMLA 2021 (March 8-14, 2021 in Philadelphia)


According to the World Health Organization, nearly one in every six people in the world is categorized as disabled, making it one of the largest minority populations across the globe. As a term that is defined, in large part, by an individual’s ability to navigate and negotiate a world designed by and for able-bodied individuals, central to the concept of disability is performance.

This panel invites discussions of the intersection between disability and gender in German literature, film, and culture. Where do these performances intersect? What impact do they have on each other?

Discussions of cognitive, psychological, and physical disability as they pertain to gender are welcome.
