HIST 476. History of Disability in Postwar Europe, 1945-1991

This course is an introduction to the history of disability in Europe from 1945 to the present. After WWII, European countries went through a phase of postwar reconstruction that required rebuilding economies, societies and entire cities as well as individual bodies and psyches. In this course, we will learn how governments with different political orientations treated their disabled citizens, conceptualized their rights and devised specific social policies to protect them. Prerequisite:  HIST 395  or permission of the instructor.
