Deafhood 101 (Jan)

Deafhood 101 is an introduction to consciousness-raising of the “Deaf Being” through the lens of phonocentric colonialism of the Deaf peoples. We explore the hidden discourses behind the medical/scientific hegemony controlling the education of Deaf people. We promote better understanding of the unlimited potential of our Deaf people. WIthin our curriculum, we cover the following: phonocentric colonialism, Deafhood vs deafness, the Deaf community before colonization, Deaf culture status, minorities within the Deaf community, subalterns and what it means, identity, deficit thinking, eugenics, reframing and 1,001 victories. Deafhood 101 is a prerequisite for Deafhood 201.
