Sign Language, the Deaf and the Epistemic Violence of Mainstreaming.
Branson, Jan; Miller, Don
Language and Education, v7 n1 p21-41 1993
A study of the relationship between the deaf, their native sign languages, and the encompassing hearing societies and their cultures, within the context of schooling, demonstrates how the discourse on sign language within education is a vital ingredient in the assertion of symbolic power by the hearing establishment over the deaf community. The case of Australia is cited. (Author/LB)
