"In German-speaking countries, research into the history of deaf people as a marginalized, linguistic-cultural minority is still in its infancy. This volume offers an innovative look at Germany, Austria and Switzerland from the 18th century to the present day.

Taking into account the perspectives of sign language deaf people, the articles deal with educational opportunities and methods, human rights, experiences of oppression and autonomy as well as self-organization in different political systems. This lays the foundation for a deaf history in the German-speaking area that is aware of its diverse transnational roots and influences."
