ASL 3350 American Deaf Arts and Literature offered Autumn 2017
The ASL Program is excited to be able to offer the ASL 3350: American Deaf Arts and Literature course autumn semester 2017. The course will survey literary and artistic works about being deaf that are written or created by individuals who are American and deaf.Topics covered in the course will include (but not limited to) social and historical implications of being deaf and the use and impact of American Sign Language (ASL) on the production and reception of “literature” in the deaf community. We will develop an understanding and appreciation of the complexities of experiencing, living and identifying with, and reflecting on, being deaf in America.
There are no prerequisites, although some basic knowledge in American Sign Language will be of benefit to the student.
