The course serves as an introduction to graduate study in Deaf Studies. Students are guided in reflecting on the past, present, and future of Deaf Studies scholarship. Exploring the historical trends and debates in Deaf Studies, we seek out foundational questions about deaf lives and communities, including identities, power, culture, and framing from interdisciplinary perspectives. Leading with stories and lived experiences, students connect theory with practice in preparation for subsequent courses within the Deaf Studies Master’s Program. The course also aims to develop critical reading and writing skills important to graduate level scholarship.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
