Rée on Deaf Nationalism

I'm reading (on and off) Jonathan Rée's I see a Voice at the moment. It's not as clear as I'd like, but makes for an interesting archeology of sign language and cultural responses to the deaf. Anyway, he has a rather interesting article on deaf nationalism in this month's Prospect Magazine. I've wanted to write an article about deaf identity and intergenerational justice for a while but, as with so many things, it remains on the 'to do' list. I'm not sure I'd write in Rée's style, but I think I'd start from the same concerned standpoint that he does.
