A special exhibition is being held at Central Library in Manchester until 14 December 2019. Deaf Education and Audiology: A Journey Through Artefacts, Archives and Creativity explores the rich and complex histories and lived experiences of D/deafness.
The exhibition looks at the extraordinary technological advances have been made in the exploration of hearing, alongside a better appreciation of the social and psychological impact of sensory perception on learning. The materials displayed offer an insight into the varied historical and contemporary approaches in deaf education and audiology. It also provokes questions around how we understand, collect and communicate D/deafness in a dominant hearing world.
The exhibition is part of the 100 year anniversary celebrations of Deaf Education and Audiology at the University of Manchester.
