HIST 230 American Deaf History: Overview

Find resources related to American Deaf History.


This guide will assist you in finding Deaf resources such as books, journals, articles, and databases. In general, Deaf-related resources tend to be in the HV2300-HV2600 area for books (4th floor including OVERSIZE books), bound journals (2nd floor) and DVDs (1st floor, Deaf Media). However, Deaf topics will be found in different call number areas. If you have questions, feel free to contact me, Joan Naturale - I am the NTID and Deaf Studies Librarian and happy to help.

An interesting book is Through deaf eyes : A photographic history of the American deaf community. A companion DVD is available. Check out the Chilmark Deaf Community Digital Historical Archive (Martha's Vineyard). Check out this article about Deaf and Printing History by Pamela Kincheloe.
