Sign Language Studies
Sign Language Studies (SLS) is an important source of research articles on signed communication, primarily but not exclusively sign languages of the deaf. The founding editor was William C. Stokoe, the first person to apply linguistic principles to American Sign Language. Dr. Stokoe owned the journal from its beginning in 1972 until about 1993. From 1994 to 1996, Sign Media, Inc. published SLS. Publication resumed in 2000 (starting with Volume 1 again) when SLS was purchased by Gallaudet University Press.
The Silent Worker
The Silent Worker was a popular national newspaper among the deaf population of the United States during the end of the 1890's through the end of the first quarter of the 20th century. Originally known as the Deaf Mute Times, it was first published in February 1888 and renamed The Silent Worker on September 27 of the same year. The New Jersey School for the Deaf continued its publication monthly, except for July, August, and periodically September until it ceased in June 1929. Deaf American authors wrote almost all articles, although occasional contributions by deaf individuals from other countries were also printed. Gallaudet University Archives has converted their collection of The Silent Worker from 1888 to 1929 into digital format, and made it available on the World Wide Web for public research.
