9780674587489: Mother Father Deaf: Living Between Sound and Silence

"Mother father deaf" is the phrase commonly used within the Deaf community to refer to hearing children of deaf parents. These children grow up between two cultures, the Hearing and the Deaf, forever balancing the worlds of sound and silence. Paul Preston, one of these children, takes us to the place where Deaf and Hearing cultures meet, where families like his own embody the conflicts and resolutions of two often opposing world views. Based on 150 interviews with adult hearing children of deaf parents throughout the United States, Mother Father Deaf examines the process of assimilation and cultural affiliation among a population whose lives incorporate the paradox of being culturally "Deaf" yet functionally hearing. It is rich in anecdote and analysis, remarkable for its insights into a family life normally closed to outsiders.

About the Author :

Paul Preston manages the recently created national Research and Training Center on Families of Adults with Disabilities, located at Through the Looking Glass, a nonprofit organization in Berkeley, California. He is also Research Associate in Medical Anthropology at the University of California, San Francisco.

From Booklist :

Preston, an anthropologist, meshes scholarship with family history in this exploration of the impact of deaf parents upon their hearing offspring. Deaf parents with hearing children have been studied before, but typically by those not themselves part of such a family situation, according to Preston, and sometimes with chips on their shoulders: they seek evidence that the hearing generation could have been damaged. Preston has sought out the true impact of such parenting upon children, whether good or bad. Through stories, family histories, and sensitive questioning, Preston reveals what it feels like to stand astride the two cultural communities and offers new insights into the world of deafness. Denise Perry Donavin
