“Reassessing What Matters in Experiences with Cochlear Implants” is a white paper co-authored by a CIHR-funded research group, including CDS co-director Mara Mills. This white paper is the result of a two-day workshop at the Université Laval bringing together scholars with disciplinary expertise in anthropology, audiology, English literature, history, psychology, and science and technology studies, to consider what is known and unknown about the experiences of deaf people with/out CIs and how such experiences are shaped through diagnostic and therapeutic infrastructures. We foreground experiences of communication with CIs, more than cognitive, spatial, or mobility-related experiences, attending to the sensory, social, and embodied experiences associated with communication.
