Abstract:
"In Reading between the Signs, Anna Mindess provides a new perspective on a poorly understood culture, American Deaf culture. With the collaboration of three distinguished Deaf consultants, Mindess explores the implication of cultural differences at the intersection of the Deaf and hearing worlds. This new, third edition of her classic and best-selling text covers several new topics of great interest to activists and interpreters, including teaming with Deaf interpreters and cultivating a "Deaf heart." It is used in Deaf studies courses and interpreter training programs worldwide. Anna Mindess has been a Sign Language interpreter for more than thirty years. She lives in Berkeley, California."-- Provided by publisher.
