L'éducation des sourds-muets au XIXe siècle : l'exemple de l'institut d'Angers

Abstract : In 1880, the Congress of Milan radically and permanently alters the condition of the Deaf and Dumb in France. Until then Sign Language largely dominated in educational institutions. However, this Congress banned the use of it in favor of a new method, the Oralism which has for aims to facilitate the integration of Deaf in society by teaching them to talk. The Center for Deaf-Mute in Angers, created in 1777 by Charlotte Blouin, is then under the leadership of the congregation of Charity St. Mary. Sisters, hitherto accustomed to instruction by the Sign Language are being forced to adapt to an unknown method. How this international decision was set up locally ? What were the pedagogical implications of this congress on the local center for Deaf and Dumb in Angers ?
