This book shows how culture contributes vital insights on issues of identity, language and power; and ultimately challenges our culture´s obsession with normalcy.

This is an American book. The editor, Professor Dirksen Bauman is a professor of Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University. While the book is written from the American perspective it is just as applicable to Australian Deaf Culture as it is American.

Features Specs Support
Open Your Eyes introduces readers to the key concepts and debates in deaf studies, offering perspectives on the relevance and richness of deaf ways of being in the world. Leading and emerging scholars, the majority of whom are deaf, consider physical and cultural boundaries of deaf people; they explore the role of gender, sexuality, disability, family and race. They explore literacy in the light of sign language and delve into the dimensions of the disability label often assigned to deafness.
