Emancipation Processes in the Ugandan Deaf Community

Sign Language Says it All

Sign Language Says it All

Goedele De Clerck and Rik Pinxten of Ghent University assembled the reader Sign Language Says it All: Contributions on diversity and sign language from an emancipatory perspective, published by Acco (Leuven) in 2012 (in Dutch). Scholars from Flanders and the Netherlands explore how sign language can be more widely exploited in all realms of life.

The reader includes the documentary I am a human being too (Ik ben ook een mens), that was based on the doctoral research of Goedele De Clerck and which was produced by Visual Box, a Flemish deaf-led non-governmental organization working on Deaf Cinema. The project was funded by the Flemish Government (Ministery of Culture – Sign Language Projects) and Ghent University.

The book and the documentary can be ordered at: www.acco.be

 

On deaf epistemologies and diversity in deaf cultural and sign language practices, deaf identity, and learning in Western and non-Western contexts, Goedele De Clerck is publishing the book: Exploring Deaf epistemologies. Comparative Studies in Identity, Empowerment, and Learning, which is currently in press by Gallaudet University Press (Washington DC).
