Academy Award-nominated "Sound and Fury", that came out in 2000, follows the intimate, heart-rending tale of the Artinians, an extended family with deaf and hearing members across three generations. Together they confront a technological device that can help the deaf to hear but may also threaten deaf culture - and their bonds with each other.

Deaf Liberation Theology
Publisher: Ashgate | ISBN: 0754655245 | edition 2007 | PDF | 208 pages | 2,2 mb

Following years of theology of deafness based on the premise that Deaf people are simply people who can't hear, this book breaks new ground. Presenting a new approach to Deaf people, theology and the Church, this book enables Deaf people who see themselves as members of a minority group to formulate their own theology rooted in their own history and culture. Deconstructing the theology and practice of the Church, Hannah Lewis shows how the Church unconsciously oppresses Deaf people through its view of them as people who can't hear.
Reading Between the Signs: Intercultural Communication for Sign Language Interpreters 2nd Edition

Reading Between the Signs: Intercultural Communication for Sign Language Interpreters 2nd Edition
Anna Mindess, Thomas K. Holcomb | ISBN: 1931930260 | PDF | 313 pages | 2006 | 5 MB

Mindess's first book helps the professional sign language interpreter provide more effective service through an understanding of deaf culture and cross-cultural communication. Mindess, herself a veteran interpreter, introduces the main concepts of intercultural communication in the first half of her work, drawing on examples from anthropology, linguistics, and related fields. She highlights differences between hearing culture and deaf culture in America that can compromise clarity in translation situations. Finally, Mindess explores the responsibilities of translators and their primary role as mediators, recognizing that American Sign Language (ASL) translators raised outside deaf culture must learn its nuances to maintain professional quality. In comparison, Melanie Metzger's more research-oriented Sign Language Interpreting: Deconstructing the Myth of Neutrality (Gallaudet Univ., 1999) reveals how interpreters influence a translation interaction. Although less academic in nature, Mindess's book is a better resource for the interpreter and is recommended for large public libraries and appropriate educational and professional settings
