Feminist Endowed Lecture Series: Hooking Up - Viral Videos and Cochlear Implants as a Case Study of Deaf Feminism - A Talk by Dr. Theresa Blankmeyer Burke

Event date and time

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 3:15pm to 4:15pm


Dr. Burke (Philosophy, Gallaudet University) develops a Deaf feminist account of the viral video phenomenon depicting young attractive white deaf women hearing through cochlear implants for the first time. She then asks whether a Deaf feminism is possible, and what this might (literally) look like as explicated through the norms of the signing Deaf community.
