Deaf Mute Howls - 98 edition

Deaf Mute Howls (ISBN10: 1563680734; ISBN13: 9781563680731)
ISBN13: 978-1563680731
ISBN10: 1563680734

Summary: Originally published in 1930, The Deaf Mute Howls challenged the prevailing practice of teaching deaf children to speak and read lips while prohibiting the use of sign language. Albert Ballin's sharp observations in this remarkable book detail his experiences (and those of others) at a late 19th-century residential school for deaf students and his frustrations as an adult seeking acceptance in the majority hearing society. The Deaf Mute Howls charts the ambiguous attitudes of deaf pe
ople toward themselves at this time. Ballin himself makes matter-of-fact use of terms now considered disparaging, such as ''deaf-mute'', and he frequently rues the ''atrophying'' of the parts of his brain necessary for language acquisition. At the same time, he rails against the loss of opportunity for deaf people, and he commandingly shifts the burden of blame to hearing people unwilling to learn the ''Universal Sign Language'', his solution to the communication problems of society. From his lively encounters with Alexander Graham Bell (whose desire to close residential schools he surprisingly supports), to his enthrallment with the film industry, Ballin's highly readable book offers an appealing look at the deaf world during his richly colored lifetime.
