Deaf Identities: Exploring New Frontiers Irene W Leigh, Catherine A O’Brien
Over the past decade, a significant body of work on the topic of deaf identities has emerged. In this volume, Leigh and O’Brien bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines — anthropology, counseling, education, literary criticism, practical religion, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and deaf studies — to examine deaf identity paradigms.
In this book, contributing authors describe their perspectives on what deaf identities represent, how these identities develop, and the ways in which societal influences shape these identities. Intersectionality, examination of medical, educational, and family systems, linguistic deprivation, the role of oppressive influences, the deaf body, and positive deaf identity development, are among the topics examined in the quest to better understand deaf identities. In reflection, contributors have intertwined both scholarly and personal perspectives to animate these academic debates. The result is a book that reinforces the multiple ways in which deaf identities manifest, empowering those whose identity formation is influenced by being deaf or hard of hearing.
