Sight Unseen: Gender and Race Through Blind Eyes
Book Description HTML
FREE Preview. First Chapter: Looks are Everything. "This book provides unique insights not only into how the blind perceive and interpret gender, race, and sexual orientation but also into how these dimensions become incorporated in our conscious and unconscious interactions with one another regardless of our physical ability to see. This is definitely a very creative idea and makes for a book that stands out as different from anything else I have ever read on this subject. The use of interviews and qualitative analysis of the interview data provides a firsthand window into experiences seldom discussed." Oliva Espin, professor emerita of psychology, San Diego State University and Alliant University.
