Discursive discrimination against the 'deaf-mute'/'deaf' and the importance of categorization in 20th century Sweden

Abstract [en]

This article sheds light on issues concerning discrimination in the history of deaf people in Sweden in the 20th century. With the help of a specific typology of concepts for analysing discrimination exercised through the use of language, it is shown how the categorization of the hearing impaired has changed over time an how, in this process of change, official discourses on 'deaf-muteness' or deafness have shifted from more to less discriminatory in certain respects and from making deaf people out as very different from the majority population to de-emphasizing differences. The overall social practice is described as moving from assimilation towards inclusion.
