Expanded Course Description
Communication is one of the most fundamental human abilities, allowing individuals to convey needs, emotions, and ideas. It is the basic framework for creating and maintaining social relationships in all cultures. The human communication systems are anatomically and physiologically complex, and are subject to disruption due to developmental and acquired conditions. In turn, communicative disorders often form the basis for social exclusion or intolerance, leading to social isolation and impacted self-identity for affected individuals. As members of a disability class, individuals with communication disorders are collectively underrepresented even in disability circles. Furthermore, certain individuals with what some would term communication "disorders" do not identify with the disability community. The purpose of this course is to examine certain cultural perceptions of communication disability and the frequently negative impact on individuals affected by those conditions. Students will explore the reciprocal relationships between communication, societal expectations, and personal identity. The course will 1) provide students with basic knowledge of communication disorders and differences; 2) examine how these differences are portrayed in the popular media; and 3) compare media portrayals with actual examples and accounts, in order to understand factual information about these issues, as well as the inaccurate perceptions and stereotypes that may be perpetuated through media and larger society.
