Category Politics: Deaf Students' Inclusion in the "Hearing University"
Komesaroff, Linda
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v9 n4 p389-403 Oct 2005
This article investigates the way in which deaf tertiary students' identity is constructed within the university--an overwhelmingly "hearing" institution. It is a descriptive and analytical account of the experiences of two deaf teacher education students as they reflect on their progress and experiences in higher education. Data have been analysed within an interpretive framework of category politics and the construction of difference. The study found that providing the same access to the same information in the same form did little to address the discursive marginality of these students.
