Culture and Disability Confusions

Ladd CH1 p. 35-36 Weiner (6:50)

Opening part of this section says “Over the last 100 years, ‘medical’ and ‘social’ models of deafness have viewed Deaf people as disabled and situated them accordingly within its practices. However, the very recent ‘culturo-linguistic model’ has produced a contemporary Deaf discourse which refuses this categorisation and denies that degree of hearing impairment has relevance for cultural membership.” This reflects the second (out of 3) clash of discourses about the Deaf situation covered in this video.

Oralism’s Grip over Society’s View on Deaf People


Ladd CH1 p.30-32 Falgier (9:05)

Discusses the Oralism/Mask of Benevolence’s powerful grip on media in framing society’s thinking about Deaf people and their issues — confusing them about Deaf people as individuals vs as a community. Also, Oralism colonialism damaged Deaf organizations’ abilities to be Deaf-centered, confident, independent from the Mask of Benevolence.
