Social Constructions of Deafness: Examining Deaf Languacultures in Education

Social Constructions of Deafness: Examining Deaf Languacultures in Education

Thomas P. Horejes’s new book focuses on revealing critical knowledge that addresses certain social justice issues, including deafness, language, culture, and deaf education. He conveys this information through discourses about his own experiences being deaf and through his research in which he “stresses the contingency of the social” in educational institutions.
