Every project and every text has its own history and constitutes a unique journey. This book is no exception. The meta-research study that is presented here has been conducted in three different geographical settings in Sweden and the United States and has stretched over four distinct phases during the last nine years. The opportunity to focus on an area that has been at the center of controversies since the establishment of Deaf education in the 1600 s has been a unique experience. This journey has also taken place in two other important senses. Studying the literature has allowed a journey back into time in order to understand the present philosophically oriented tensions in the field. The analysis has also required a meta approach to academic and faculty boundaries in order to critically understand issues in the area of literacies andDeaf education.
