Lang, Harry
Sign Language Studies, v7 n2 p141-151 Win 2007
In this presentation, the author shares a few of his personal experiences in narrating Deaf lives. Through these experiences in biographical writing, he has seen how such work can inspire young deaf people, entertain, open minds, educate, and make a difference in the quality of people's lives today. His goals for this presentation will be to show the excitement of conducting biographical research and to discuss how rewarding it can be. First, he briefly describes the kind of biographical work he has done. Then, he discusses a few examples of the joys and tribulations of narrating Deaf lives in book form. Finally, he offers suggestions to everyone who wishes to pursue this fascinating research. (Contains 3 notes.)
