“An extraordinary book. Superbly written, critically nuanced, and refreshingly new, Deafening Modernism will set the standard for future disability and Deaf studies scholarship. There is truly nothing else like it.”
—Brenda Brueggemann, author of Deaf Subjects: Between Identities and Places
“Exciting and original, Rebecca Sanchez remakes our understanding twentieth-century American literature through the frame of American Sign Language. Offering fresh and brilliant insights, Deafening Modernism will make a significant contribution to our understanding of literary modernism, while modeling new methodological directions for disability studies scholarship.”
—Rachel Adams, co-editor of Keywords for Disability Studies
“Sanchez uses ASL, Deaf culture, history, linguistics, and disabilities studies to develop a critical Deaf theory that is independent of the more familiar identity theories.”
