  • From Freak Show to Jim Crow: A Siamese Twin and His Deaf Daughter in the
           Antebellum and Postbellum South

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Eng and Chang Bunker (1811–1874) were conjoined twins of Chinese ethnicity born in Siam (today, Thailand). Before the Civil War, they toured the United States to exhibit themselves as a "human curiosity," a wonder of nature, their conjoined state documented by local doctors at each stop on their tours, and their exhibition touted as edifying and educational. At the same time, however, their skin and hair color and their facial features were widely ridiculed as racial markers. The American public was amazed, therefore, or, rather, aghast to learn in 1840 that these racialized "freaks of nature" had bought land in North Carolina's Piedmont, built a house, taken US citizenship and the last name Bunker, married two ...

  • Deaf People in Arusha (Tanzania): Experiences with a Multilingual
           Education System, Mainstream Society's Expectations, Deaf Spaces, and
           Identity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To achieve a good quality of life in Tanzania, people must seek education in order to secure a job to support oneself and a family. However, deaf Tanzanians face systematic barriers in education, which creates a domino effect for them, as those barriers prevail in different components of their livelihoods: language choice, economic opportunities, and attitudes about disability and deafness in Tanzania.Deaf studies as a field has hardly touched Tanzania, with the notable exception of Lee (2012), an unpublished PhD thesis, which will be described in the following literature review. African studies has so far contributed little to the academic discussion of deaf people in the country. Many researchers within Tanzania ... Read More

  • Academic American Sign Language in a Home of Two Deaf Parents and Their
           Young Deaf Children

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The home is the critical setting for early language development. Language used in school, or academic language, is socialized first in the home and correlated with later reading and school success (Schleppegrell 2001, 2004). Language access is necessary to tap into the background knowledge required for learning (Beal-Alvarez and Easterbrooks 2013), including incidental learning and world knowledge. Access to experiences is correlated with increased language development (Marschark, et al. 2011) that is crucial for some d/Deaf or hard or hearing (d/Dhh) children who experience language delays (Bebko, Calderon, and Treder 2003). We believe that all d/Dhh children should be exposed to sign language to access and make ... Read More

  • Corrective Feedback to Second Language Learners of American Sign Language

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Hearing adults' interest in learning signed languages (bimodal second language or M2-L2 learning) has been growing in recent decades. Bochner, et al. (2011) noted that American Sign Language (ASL) has become a frequently taught second language in Canada and the United States, and there are reports of interest in signed languages elsewhere, including the Netherlands (Boers-Vikar and Peau 2020) and Australia (Willoughby et al. 2015). This increased attention has raised pedagogical questions about how signed language teachers can best facilitate learning, as there has been little research on M2-L2 acquisition (Beal and Faniel 2018) and consequently few examples of evidence-based resources for teachers to consult ...
