Ohio State University professor Brenda Brueggemann is committed to making her course content accessible to students with disabilities. Her course offerings have included such subjects as "Representations of Deafness in Literature and Film" and "Critical Writing." Her recent book, "Deaf Subjects: Between Identities and Places," is made up of essays on the modern deaf subject since the turn of the 19th century. Brueggemann visits Writers Talk to share an excerpt from Chapter 6, "Posting Mabel," a work of creative non-fiction that explores the world of Mabel Hubbard Bell, Alexander Graham Bell's deaf wife and a character whom Brueggemann refers to as a "classic case study."
