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.
