Disability in Game of Thrones (a lecture excerpt from The University of Sydney)
This video is an excerpt from a lecture in Introduction to Gender Studies delivered by Mia Harrison at the University of Sydney on May 16, 2019. The topic for this week was "Bodily Norms" and covered a broader discussion of disability and fat politics and scholarship.
This excerpt only covers the portion of the lecture addressing disability in Game of Thrones, so there are some moments referring back to ideas addressed earlier in the lecture. All student contributions have also been cut out.
