As a college professor of Deaf Studies for the past thirty years, I’ve been frustrated by the limited selection of teaching materials for my Deaf Culture courses. Many of my colleagues have also shared the same frustration. To address this problem, I have collaborated on several projects to develop various instructional materials (books and DVDs) to support Deaf Culture courses. Yet, I still felt was something missing: a college-level textbook designed specifically for Deaf Culture classes. To fill that void, I decided to write a book on American Deaf Culture and I’m excited to let you know that after ten years work, Introduction to American Deaf Culture will be released this fall, published by Oxford University Press. I will keep you up to date on its progress through this blog.
