Examining the intersection of women’s history and Deaf history, this course offers a close and comprehensive study of a minority within a minority: Deaf women.

As a graduate-level course, this class emphases comparative studies and multidisciplinary interpretations, honing students’ analytical skills. Moreover, it will incorporate hands-on work with primary sources to promote independent research in history and related disciplines.
