March Deaf Reading

by | Jul 26, 2021 | Assignment

Write the following essay March Deaf Reading/Reflection #1. The essay is to be 1 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference regardless of “an intensive lobbying campaign, aimed at the search committee and the board of trustees, advocating the appointment of a deaf person” (Barnartt & Christiansen 4) was an indication of an unwillingness to accommodate deaf people in positions of leadership at the university. The most important point to consider here is that the deaf students had campaigned and lobbied for a deaf president, only to see their efforts trashed by an unfair decision. In my opinion the protests were warranted. To make matters worse, the announcement of the selection of the hearing woman (Elizabeth Zinser) was made not by the board of trustees, but “the university’s public relations office” (Barnartt & Christiansen 4).

This is a clear display of defiance and a “so what” attitude that would not and did not go down well with the deaf students. It also showed that the board of trustees did not mind treating the students with contempt as they did, and that there were poor relations between deaf students and the university. One of the students by the name of Ducks was especially waiting for the selection of a deaf president because he “had been working for months to try to convince the board to select a deaf president” (Barnartt & Christiansen
