Historical Information for What is Deafhood? (Collapse)

The What is Deafhood? workshop was held at NTID in the Panara Theatre on March 29, 2008. The workshop included Ella Mae Lentz, David Eberwein, and Genie Gertz. The workshop flier states: "A Deafhood vision for a world...

  • Where being Deaf is celebrated and never condemned
  • Where academic excellence in a natural Sign Language is critical and never compromised
  • Where Deaf-related concerns are "heard" and never ignored
  • Where false divisions among Deaf people are discarded and natural diversity is embraced."
