"Hearing loss is one of those 'deficiencies' that help analyze in mundane interactions how body/technology/identity/intelligibility etc. emerge as interactional phenomena. My interest in hearing loss communication is twofold: 1) the analysis of it helps understand any communication situation; 2) detailed analyses might help people deal with hearing loss in their everyday life."
