Example text

There was some support for the presence of higher self-esteem in those identifying as culturally Deaf or bicultural in comparison to those identified as culturally hearing or having negative identities. In terms of social identity theory, the focus was not primarily on the hearing disability. Rather, the importance of language and communication, socialization, and social perspectives about what it means to hear or not to hear in forging deaf-related or hearing-related identities was paramount. , Stinson & Foster, 2000; Stinson & Kluwin, 1996; Stinson & Whitmire, 1992).

Lane (1992, p. 206) mentions the appropriateness of the “infirmity model” for the late-deafened contingent, thereby attempting to differentiate disability based on age of onset. But there are many latedeafened individuals, including I. King Jordan, the former president of Gallaudet University, who have repeatedly disavowed the infirmity concept. Corker (1994) indicates that Lane does a disservice to the Identity and the Power of Labels 19 late-deafened contingent, since the experiential process of deaf identity formation and self-perceptions as disabled are individualized and varied, not subject to generalization.

The focus on culture and an increasing Deaf consciousness demands scholarly examination and consequently has resulted in the development of Deaf Studies as a discipline (Bauman, 2008a; Jankowski, 1997; Sanders, 1986). This discipline focuses on the study of the language, community, and culture of Deaf people, rather than hearing-loss prevention or cure. Its goal is to influence theory and practice in mainstream fields that deal with questions of human interaction, language, and cognition by adding vision to audition (Centre for 20 A Lens on Deaf Identities Deaf Studies, 2006).
