A focus on South African deaf education and Deaf community
Academic literature about Deaf communities in developing countries is thin. As a result, it is hard to find more than a few articles across different journals that focus on a single country. But a special issue of the American Annals of Deafness journal focuses primarily on South African Deaf education and Deaf community. It is old, but it is a rare opportunity to read many articles on the topic from different angles. The first few articles are on other topics, but then the special section runs from pages 488 to 518.
Accessing the articles
Most of the articles in this special issue are not easily available online for free. But you can read the introduction in either Word or PDF for free. Meanwhile, the JSTOR platform allows people to register to read up to six articles for free. But after this, people need to either buy more articles or ask their library to provide the articles.
Also watch an interview with Ayanda Ntukwana about sign language and deaf education in South Africa. The video produced in 2018.
