Abstract

In this paper I explore the nature of a culturally Deaf identity as opposed to a medical view of deafness, exploring notions of the ‘Deaf’ community as a colonised community and ‘Deaf’ as an ethnic identity. I then look at the language of the ‘community’ and changes in legislation about language use that have lead to greater feelings of empowerment for the Deaf community. Further to this I explore different understandings of the political nature of translation and interpreting. This leads me into exploring the way in which Deaf people working in broadcast television news understand their role when rendering English into British Sign Language.
