New Resources by Elsa Sjunneson
You’ll want to take note of three resources by Elsa Sjunneson, a professor, author, and media critic who is deaf-blind. Her memoir, Being Seen: One Deafblind Woman’s Fight to End Ableism, explores the impact of the media’s misrepresentation of disability. In “The Helen Keller Exorcism,” a RadioLab interview, Sjunneson talks about her resistance to being compared to Helen Keller and how this evolved as she came to know Helen’s history more deeply. And most recently, PBS released a short documentary about her life.
