Course Overview

Memoir is one of the hot genres right now. Real stories affect us in ways that fictional stories don’t. There is power in knowing that the stories we are reading really happened to the person who wrote it–or at least they claim the stories happened! People aren’t always truthful, and memories are not always reliable; we will talk about this too as we read, discuss, and analyze memoirs by deaf and hard of hearing writers from a variety of backgrounds. We will read memoirs from members of the Deaf community, and from those outside of it–and of many different intersectional identities.
