ASL 2301

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course, taught by a culturally Deaf individual, will offer students an opportunity of learning first-hand about a culture within the American cultural context, with constructions of Deaf people as a linguistic minority. A major focus of this course is to bring students to an understanding of how differently the world can be viewed through "Deaf eyes" and how understanding this worldview can account for views toward the teaching and enculturation of deaf children, Deafhood, biomedical ethics, oppression of signed languages, the provision of accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a host of other issues at the interface between hearing and Deaf cultures.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ASL 1102 or by permission from lead ASL instructor.

Distribution Category (SBA-AS, SCD-AS)

Comments Can be taken concurrently with ASL 2201. Course conducted entirely in ASL.
