I just received Thomas Holcomb’s book on deaf culture published in 2013. There’s no way I’ll have time to read the whole thing, but I’m really only interested in his chapters on defining deaf culture. As many of you know, I’ve long been interested in how conceptions of culture have been incorporated into deaf studies and interpreting studies. Holcomb’s book is the most recent engagement with deaf culture by a leading member of the deaf community.
Have any of you read this book? I’m curious to know what you think.
