Ästhetik der Behinderung: “Psychologie der Hässlichkeit”

We recently found a prior announcement to a lecture course by Prof. Dr. phil., Dipl.-Psych. Dietrich Eggert (Institut für Sonderpädagogik, philosophische Fakultät) at Leibniz University Hannover on the “Psychology of Uglyness”. We haven’t found any further information on content and results, yet. But it seems, that there are at least some parallels to our research topics, since Eggert’s lecture strikes some of the important questions about the aesthetics of disability, e.g.: Beauty and Uglyness as preconditions  for  judging on  other people. Or Disabling conditions in communication.
