Abstract:

This book presents a "Traveller's Guide" to Deaf Culture, starting
from the premise that Deaf cultures have an important contribution to
make to other academic disciplines, and human lives in general. Within
and outside Deaf communities, there is a need for an account of the
new concept of Deaf culture, which enables readers to assess its place
alongside work on other minority cultures and multilingual
discourses. The book aims to assess the concepts of culture, on their
own terms and in their many guises and to apply these to Deaf
communities. The author illustrates the pitfalls which have been
created for those communities by the medical concept of "deafness" and
contrasts this with his new concept of "Deafhood", a process by which
every Deaf child, family and adult implicitly explains their existence
in the world to themselves and each other.
