Essay 1: “Challenging Discourses of Disabled Sexual Deviance: An Historic Overview and Critical Analysis” seeks to establish how the discourse of disabled sexual deviance has been maintained through the historical oppression of people with disability. It analyses how disabled sexual deviance is upheld by rampant sexual exclusion and compromised sexual citizenship. Essay 2: “Toward Disabled Perspectives of Sexual Expression: A Multi-Media Analysis” evaluates the representations of sexuality and disability in dramatic, documentary, and science-fiction film, and in live performance. It pays particularly close attention to the ways in which deviant representations of disabled sexual expression can begin to be deconstructed by adopting perspectives of disabled sexual diversity and inexactness within them.
