BUG: DEAF IDENTITY & INTERNAL REVOLUTION (P)

BUG: DEAF IDENTITY & INTERNAL REVOLUTION (P)

$28.80
More Info

"What you have in your hands is a bomb. But it is the kind you need to hold on to for dear life, not run away from."
--From the Foreword, John Lee Clark

Christopher Jon Heuer lost his hearing early, but not before "being able to hear a lot as a kid." He also received a good education, both in a speech-oriented setting and a signing environment. These varied experiences provided him with the perfect background to write about biases he faced, not only those of a mostly oblivious hearing society, but also those of ideologically restrictive members of the Deaf community. BUG: Deaf Identity and Internal Revolution combines new work of Heuer's with his best columns from The Tactile Mind Weekly and the National Association of the Deaf's Mind Over Matter. He addresses all topics - exit interviews, baldness, faith healing, marriage, cats, Christmas trips, backyard campfires in boxer shorts - with a withering wit that spares no aspect of life and deafness.

Being "bugged" for Heuer began early: "When I was growing up, my mother's response to every problem I had was: 'Well, he just needs to adjust to his deafness.' Bloody nose? 'Chris, you need to adjust to your deafness.' Homework not done? 'I know it's hard adjusting to your deafness, honey, but ....' Acne scarring? 'Lots of teenagers get zits, Chris. I know it's hard for you, dealing with this while trying to adjust to your ....'" He rebelled then, and continues through his even-handed irreverence in BUG, a bomb that should go off in everyone's consciousness about being deaf and Deaf.

    More than four hundred illustrations complement this chronological exploration of the American craft tradition. Keeping as their main focus the objects and the makers, Janet Koplos and Bruce Metcalf offer a detailed analysis of seminal works and discussions of education, institutional support, and the philosophical underpinnings of craft. In a vivid and accessible narrative, they highlight the value of physical skill, examine craft as a force for moral reform, and consider the role of craft as an aesthetic alternative.

    Exploring craft's relationship to fine arts and design, Koplos and Metcalf foster a critical understanding of the field and help explain craft's place in contemporary culture. Makers will be an indispensable volume for craftspeople, curators, collectors, critics, historians, students, and anyone who is interested in American craft.

    A look at the gulf that separates the deaf minority from the hearing world, this book sheds light on the mistreatment of the deaf community by a hearing establishment that resists understanding and awareness. Critically acclaimed as a breakthrough when it was first published in 1992, this new edition includes information on the science and ethics of childhood cochlear implants. An indictment of the ways in which experts in the scientific, medical, and educational establishment purport to serve the deaf, this bookdescribes how they, in fact, do them great harm."
