ya hoo Dr. Harlan Lane will be presenting at NTID/RIT on Monday about the People of the Eye: Deaf Ethnicity and Ancestry – a book he coauthored with Richard Pillard and Ulf Hedberg


Dr. Lane, who is a MacArthur Genuis Award winner, wrote When the Mind Hears: A history of the Deaf – an excellent book re: Deaf education in France and the US, Mask of Benevolence: Disabling the Deaf Community – an pow pow book examining the unexamined (paternalism, audism, ableism, and linguicism via Deaf education),  A Journey into the Deaf-World by Lane, Hoffmeister, and Bahan – an overview of Deaf culture in America and many other publications.

His latest book – People of the Eye rocks the house.  yes yes i know im biased given the name of this blogsite but heye good stuff grows.  If u want to know the origins of that phrase “People of the Eye” click the About Veditz quote button (top right)
