Answering the Call for 'Help':
Asylum for Deaf Immigrants
here is a substantial amount of literature in circulation
pertaining to deaf culture. According to research conducted
by Professor Robert Sparrow, Ph.D., for example, deaf people
have their own set of cultural norms. Sparrow, who teaches
at the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies
at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, noted in the Journal
of Political Philosophy, that "Deaf people constitute a minority
culture rather than merely a group of people who share a disability."
ey possess "their own distinct languages, each with a unique
vocabulary and grammar. Deaf people also have a shared set of
experience(s), relating to the consequences of deafness in a hearing
culture, a shared history and distinct set of institutions."
