Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States is an introduction to Deaf culture in America. Its intended audience is people who are relatively new to studying Deaf culture. Each chapter discusses a different topic in Deaf culture, but links it to larger themes and concepts that are found throughout the book. Deaf culture is discussed across history—from the first American school for the Deaf to recent advances in technology. Questions, photographs, and small stories strengthen the teaching moments and help the reader make real-world connections to the concepts. The goal of the book is to show the complexity of Deaf culture in a way that is accessible to its audience.
