From the archives: What the world demands of deaf people
Play • 49 min

When Jaipreet Virdi was a child, illness left her with severe hearing loss – leaving her in limbo between the deaf community and those who had no trouble hearing. She’s now an assistant history professor at the University of Delaware, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about her research into medicine’s long legacy of promised hearing cures and why science has yet to achieve a universal solution. Her book is called “Hearing Happiness: Deafness Cures in History.”
