This new collection bridges two dynamic academic fields: Women's Studies and Deaf Studies. The 14 contributors to this interdisciplinary volume apply research and methodological approaches from sociology, ethnography, literary/film studies, history, rhetoric, education, and public health to open heretofore unexplored territory. Part One: In and Out of the Community addresses female dynamics within deaf schools; Helen Keller's identity as a deaf woman; deaf women's role in Deaf organizations; and whether or not the inequity in education and employment opportunities for deaf women is bias against gender or disability. Part Two: (Women's) Authority and Shaping Deafness explores the life of 19th-century teacher Marcelina Ruis Y Fernandez; the influence of single, hearing female instructors in deaf education; the extent of women's authority over oralist educational dictates during the 1900s; and a deaf daughter's relationship with her hearing mother in the late 20th century. Part Three: Reading Deaf Women considers two deaf sisters' exceptional creative freedom from 1885 to 1920; the depictions of deaf or mute women in two popular films; a Deaf woman's account of blending the public-private, deaf-hearing, and religious-secular worlds; how five Deaf female ASL teachers define "gender," "feminism," "sex," and "patriarchy" in ASL and English; and 20th-century American Deaf beauty pageants that emphasize physicality while denying Deaf identity, yet also challenge mainstream notions of "the perfect body."
