This course engages students with theory and content that is foundational to the practices of Cultural Studies in general and Deaf Studies in particular. In addition to exploring the historical trends and debates in these fields, this course asks students to explore key aspects of deaf lives and communities, including identities, power, culture and framing from interdisciplinary perspectives. The readings, discussion and research from this class form a cornerstone to subsequent courses within the Deaf Studies Master¿s Program.
