This presentation will explore some of the myths and legacy of Alexander Graham Bell–a man whose impact on the deaf world has often been dressed up as pure benevolence, but which caused lasting harm. But what happened, exactly? This presentation will cover some of the misunderstandings related to Bell’s advocacy of oralism, invention of the telephone, and relationship to the eugenics movement, as well as the role his deaf wife, Mabel, played in influencing Graham’s life.
Participants will be able to distinguish facts from myths regarding several often-misunderstood elements of Bell’s life, including his role in oralism, the invention of the telephone, and his involvement in eugenics.
Participants will be able to deconstruct the roots of the several different simplified images of Bell that exist today.
Participants will be able to detect the delicate nature of Bell’s legacy and its impact.
