312 Biography 31.2 (Spring 2008) does much to support Ferguson’s contention that “we are now in a moment in which institutionalization is the standard of the evolved and developed critical subject.” work cited Ferguson, Roderick A. “Administering Sexuality; or The Will to Institutionality.” Radical History Review 100 (Winter 2008): 158–69. Mark McLelland Hartig, Rachel M. Crossing the Divide: Representations of Deafness in Biog- raphy. Washington, D.C.: Gallaudet UP, 2006. 161 pp. ISBN 1-5636- 8298-2, $29.95. A biographical treatment of three deaf French biographers’ treatments of their deaf subjects. In each central chapter, Hartig first constructs her own biog - raphies of the three late nineteenth and early twentieth century deaf biogra- phers at the focus of her book—Jean-Ferdinand Berthier, Yvonne Pitrois, and Corinne Rocheleau. Arguing that each of these three biographers approach- es his/her “subject” as a way of approaching self—“to explore their inner- most selves and deal with feelings of ambivalence about their own deafness” (viii)—Hartig suggests that each of these three biographers writes as a way to cross a cultural divide that exists between deaf and hearing people. The open- ing and closing chapters first discuss the general (autobiographical) nature of biographical form, and then, in conclusion, the more specic fi role of these three biographers’ use of the genre as a way “to heal the traumas they had experienced” (as deaf people). As the biographer of other biographers, Hartig does not ree fl ct on her own auto/biographical role in this work. Brenda Jo Brueggemann
