Deaf History

This subject deals with all aspects of Deaf history.

Deaf Culture, Community and Language star
What is the Deaf Community? Does a Deaf Culture exist? Are the manual signs Deaf people use really a Language? And are Deaf people “whole persons or simply wounded ears”? These questions have troubled and confused the hearing world for thousands of years.

Deaf History star[offsite link]
A portal for Deaf History

Deaf History Time line star[offsite link]
Timeline of Gallaudet and Deaf Culture

Deaf Poetry star
Deaf Poetry - is this an oxymoron? A discussion about whether someone who is deaf can understand the cadence and flow of words in poetry.

Forming the Deaf Culture star
When ideas and theories are challenged a community breaks away from the mainstream culture and, as is the case with the Deaf, a new sub-culture is formed. A culture is a “System of symbols, including language and values and the patterned way of doing things shared by a given human group.”

Helen Keller - Deaf and Blind star
I had the privilege of visiting Helen Keller’s childhood home while I was in Alabama in 2013. Her story is one of courage – both from her point of view but also that of her Teacher and family.

History of Auslan - Australian Sign Language star
Deaf Communities were formed as a result of adversity and alienation – a necessity for a group of people who were branded with a stigma who were ostracised and isolated from the world into which they were born. It was from this that their rich language was developed.

One Hundred Living Witnesses star[offsite link]
A booklet advertising the "dentaphone," claiming to help the Deaf hear through the teeth, from the 1800´s

The Evolution of Auslan star
A discussion on the influence of education, schools families and Communities in the evolution of Auslan
