Introduction to Deaf Culture - Winter 2020Term: Winter 2020 Class Meets: Thursday, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm ET
Can hearing people be a part of the Deaf community? Why are cochlear implants so controversial? Are Signed Exact English, American Sign Language, and Pidgin Sign all the same thing? In what ways are Deaf people and people with disabilities similar and different? What type of careers can I obtain working with Deaf people?
These are a few of the many questions we will answer this semester. This course is designed to introduce you to the most important aspects of the American Deaf experience. We will expose the history, contributions, and contemporary lives of Deaf people in America.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, we will address topics such as the diversity of Deaf people, Deaf cultural norms, Deaf arts, and Deaf international communities. This course will provide you will a foundation in which future Deaf Studies classes will expand.
NOTE: Registration deadline is December 30, 2019.
