Traditionally, deaf education has been treated as the domain of special educators who strive to overcome the difficulties associated with hearing loss. Recently, the sociocultural view of deafness has prompted research and academic study of Deaf culture, sign language linguistics, and bilingual education. Linda Komesaroff exposes the power of the entrenched dominant groups and their influence on the politics of educational policy and practice in Disabling Pedagogy: Power, Politics, and Deaf Education.

Komesaroff suggests a reconstruction of deaf education based on educational and social theory. First, she establishes a deep and situated account of deaf education in Australia through interviews with teachers, Deaf leaders, parents, and other stakeholders. Komesaroff then documents a shift to bilingual education by one school community as part of her ethnographic study of language practices in deaf education. She also reports on the experiences of deaf students in teacher education. Her study provides an analytical account of legal cases and discrimination suits brought by deaf parents for lack of access to native sign language in the classroom. Komesaroff confronts the issue of cochlear implantation, locating it within the broader context of gene technology and bioethics, and advocates linguistic rights and self-determination for deaf people on the international level. Disabling Pedagogy concludes with a realistic assessment of the political challenge and the potential of the “Deaf Resurgence” movement to enfranchise deaf people in the politics of their own education.

About the Author:

Linda Komesaroff is a senior lecturer at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia.

Review:

As a Deaf educator and researcher heavily involved in Deaf education, I recommend Disabling Pedagogy: Power, Politics, and Deaf Education as a go-to book for anyone who wants to understand Deaf education through the contrasting lenses of Deaf people and hearing people. The author does a remarkable job of exploring power dynamics within Deaf education. She addresses a variety of important issues, includes a keen analysis of hearing-deaf viewpoints, presents powerful personal anecdotes, and provides a succinct overview of history, research, and laws related to this important topic. This is a brief, easy-to-read, and thought-provoking book that will challenge readers to think differently about Deaf education. (American Annals of the Deaf)

Book Description Gallaudet University Press,U.S., United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Drawing on interviews with educators, parents, students, community leaders, and others with a stake in deaf education, Linda Komesaroff presents a deep account of the political challenges facing this entrenched special education group and presents specific strategies for how these challenges might be addressed. Among the initiatives Komesaroff explores as part of her ethnographic study is the shift to a bilingual education model to redress the lack of access to native sign language in the classroom. In Disabling Pedagogy, she analyzes the successes of this model, as well as the complaints field in recent discrimination suits throughout Australia, to offer a way to think about how we might better conceptualize deaf education in general.
