Jaipreet Virdi, Ph.D., assistant professor of history, University of Delaware
When: 3:30-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22
Where: University Student Commons Theater
Jaipreet Virdi is completing her first book, “Hearing Happiness: Fakes, Frauds, and Fads in Deafness Cures,” to be published by the University of Chicago Press. This book rethinks how therapeutic negotiation and the influence of pseudo-medicine shaped what it meant to be a “normal” deaf citizen in American history. She examines how deaf/deafened individuals have attempted to amplify their hearing through various types of surgical, proprietary and/or technological “deafness cures” and charts the dissemination of ideas about hearing loss, from medical elites to popular culture and the popular imagination.
