In the aftermath of the World Wars, the concept of disability gained momentum. It was observed that the individuals with disability were subjected to segregation and isolation. However, by the advent of 21st Century, this mindset transitioned from the ‘medical model’ to the ‘social model’ which elevated the positioning of the ‘disabled subject’ from the margins to the forefront. This ‘social model’ further envisaged the inclusion of various discourses such as art, literature, psychology, law, science and health.

Dans cette session de Women in French (WIF), nous invitons des interventions explorant des productions du 21ème siècle par des femmes (romans, films, poésie, bande dessinée) qui prennent le biais d’une autre réalité pour réfléchir sur notre contemporanéité. Fables, contes, récits de science-fiction ou de fantasy sont souvent les reflets de nos désirs et de nos peurs en matière de régime politique, abus des corps et de la technologie, relations entre les humains et les animaux et la planète. La session se veut à la fois formelle et informelle, ancrée dans la recherche des participant.e.s et l’interaction entre les expériences plutôt qu’une présentation formelle.
