In a Different Voice: Sign Language Preservation and America's Deaf Community.
Burch, Susan
Bilingual Research Journal, v24 n4 p443-64 Fall 2000
Oralism, which teaches lip reading and speech instead of American Sign Language (ASL), was hostile to deaf culture in the early 1900s. Deaf resistance to oralism solidified the deaf community through support of deaf teachers; establishment of deaf newspapers, clubs, and churches; and production of sign-language films and dictionaries.
