Birkbeck Medical Humanities Reading Group: Exploring deaf ways of seeing through film-making techniques and visual media technologies
Thursday 4 July 2019, 14:30-16:00, Room 106, 43 Gordon Square
Are there deaf ways of seeing? And if so, what might this mean for filmmaking by and for the deaf? In this session led by Dr Rebekah Cupitt, we will explore these questions through the following readings:
- Anu Sharma and Hannah Glick, “Cross-Modal Re-Organization in Clinical Populations with Hearing Loss”, Brain Sciences, 2016, 6, 4.
- Patricia Durr, “Deconstructing the Forced Assimilation of Deaf People Via De’VIA Resistance and Affirmation Art”, Visual Anthropology Review, 15.2 (Fall/Winter 1999-2000)
The readings for each session are held in a shared Dropbox folder. If you need access, email firstname.lastname@example.org (include your Dropbox-linked email address, if you have one).
Everyone is welcome at the reading group. There is no need to book. For directions to our Bloomsbury campus please see http://www.bbk.ac.uk/maps. An access guide to the building is available at AccessAble https://www.accessable.co.uk/venues/school-of-arts.
The Birkbeck Medical Humanities Reading Group aims to create a space in which academics, clinicians and students can come together to explore key readings, ideas and materials in the field of medical humanities. Our endeavour is to find ways of talking across the different disciplines of the humanities and medicine, and we welcome participation from colleagues and students interested and engaged in these areas.
