Summary
How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? This book addresses these questions with both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people. This text also describes how advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts. In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World. Key Features: Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture. Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples. Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner. PluralPlus companion website with a word bank, glossary, resource list for readers and test bank and digital slides/presentations for teachers. Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture.
