Due to the visual nature of American Sign Language, students should note that instruction in the language requires the faces of students and instructors to be visible during classes and can also only be effectively managed in specific classrooms that are not too large in size. Because of this, the course may have to shift to a remote teaching modality in Fall 2021 depending on requirements for the use of masks and the need for social distancing on campus to address health concerns.
  Course Description
This course introduces students to the history, culture, and language of Deaf people at the national and international levels. Using an interdisciplinary approach, topics such as audism, education, literature and arts, politics, technology, biomedical ethics, and social justice will be addressed. This course will be conducted in American Sign Language (ASL) with voice interpretation.
