Course Overview

A seminar course for graduate students on global themes in Deaf Studies. This
course offers an examination of interdisciplinary attempts to construct deaf lives.
Using a thematic approach, this course pulls together the themes of race, disability,
citizenship, and empire. The course explores the notion of the Other to better
understand various dynamics of structural power that meets at the intersection of
deaf lives. How does race, disability, and other forms of Otherness interface with
deaf ways of being? We interrogate the challenges of the archive in excavating
knowledges about other deaf lives. Students will discuss scholarship in critical race
theory, colonialism, orientalism, and indigeneity. This course aims to animate
questions and new modes of critique.
