Class Description: 
(Course offered through NTID) The major focus of this course is on "the image of the deaf and "the deaf experience" as depicted in literature. The course attempts to define "deafness" and the cultural roles it plays in both texts by deaf authors and texts about deaf persons, as well as to examine particular literary forms related to the deaf experience. Thus, attention is also given to studying ASL poetry.
