Shanghai: Disability in a Global Context 
May 29- June 13, 2017 

Join a diverse group of students from varied backgrounds in Shanghai for two weeks in January. Previously offered in Argentina, Ghana and Israel, this course explores disability in a variety of global contexts. Together you’ll examine disability, particularly how the physical and cultural contexts including environmental attributes, religion, social mores, and families influence participation by people with disabilities. Visit medical environments, schools, and everyday settings to observe the experiences of people with disabilities, learning from them as well as the individuals who work with them. Dr. Poole and local experts share their knowledge through lectures and discussions. Trips to cultural sites round out the program.
