This dissertation studies the transnational lives of Deaf Americans between 1870 and 1924. Deaf Americans of the time articulated a discourse of co-equality, seeking to participate in society as Deaf— and as deaf— people. Through participation in a transnational Deaf public sphere, Deaf people in the United States and Europe could exchange ideas on how to live in larger society.
