Negotiating a Cure: Deafness Technologies and the Health Market at VCU Student Commons Theater

Tuesday, 22 October, 2019


Join VCU's Science, Technology, and Society Program for the second lecture in our annual series on Disability Studies. Dr. Jaipreet Virdi (Assistant Professor of History, University of Delaware) rethinks what it meant to be a "normal" deaf citizen in American history. She examines both how deaf/deafened individuals attempted to amplify their hearing through "deafness cures," and how medical elites, popular culture, and the popular imagination have understood and represented hearing loss.

Co-sponsored by VCU Transforming Accessibility Initiative.

*Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) services available at this event.
