From The Midwest Book Review

Edited by professors Brenda Jo Brueggemann and Susan Burch, Women and Deafness: Double Visions is an anthology of essays by learned authors discussing deafness and deaf identity in the context of women’s studies, and vice versa. Pieces contemplate why Helen Keller, perhaps the most famous deaf woman of all, is remembered primarily as a champion specifically of the blind; the issue of mothers raising their children according to oralist dictates “like ordinary hearing children”; the significance and impact of the Deaf American Beauty Pageant, and much more. A welcome and much-needed contribution addressing serious gaps in both women’s studies and deaf studies reference shelves.

Brenda Jo Brueggemann is a professor in the Department of English at the University of Louisville.

Susan Burch is an associate professor of American Studies with the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity at Middlebury College.
