HIS-755 Deaf Women’s History
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. Students will be introduced to recent scholarship that directly examines this topic, as well as vital works from related fields in history and other disciplines. 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. Ultimately, this focused study of identity challenges students to reconsider traditional notions of history, gender, disability, cultural Deafness, beauty, normalcy/ability, citizenship, and status.
