What does it mean to be Deaf? This question is explored by a Yale University exhibit that demonstrates deafness as both an audiological condition as well as a shared language and culture.
Himmelfarb Library is featuring Yale University’s Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library’s exhibit entitled “Deaf: Cultures and Communication, 1600 to the Present.” This exhibit is being shown on the first floor monitor in Himmelfarb, with an accompanying book exhibit of audiology materials in the display case.
The exhibit explores the history of audiological medical advances, education, and popular culture influences of the Deaf Community.
The online exhibit will be featured until Friday April 1.
