A famous writer about the Deaf and their history, culture is Prof. Harlan
Lane. I have read different books from him as part of my Auslan research
and they are excellent.

One book I am (sporadically, I AM busy!) reading now is "When the mind
hears". This book explains the history of the Deaf and is fantastic reading

Hello Kelli and list,
A good book to read is "train go sorry" Inside a deaf world. By Leah Hager
This may answer some of your questions about deaf culture, deaf residential

It is too bad that Ms Cohen was not aware of the written system at the time
she wrote this book. I can tell you from our experience that Sign Writing
a bridge between the deaf and the hearing!! SW. has enlarged my vocabulary
in ASL.
ASL is my third language; it is an absolute joy learning it, especially
through SW. list.
Good luck with your research paper.
