Project: "Beyond sonority: temporalities, anticipations and aspirationsof deaf people"

Supervisors: Dr. Maria Isabel Belausteguigoitia Rius, UNAM; Prof. Dr. Stephanie Schütze, Freie Universität Berlin

This research interweaves the kaleidoscope of the multiple ways of naming, meaning, looking and projecting Deaf people towards the future with their lived experiences within the educational spaces- times, from making an autobiographical narrative re-construction in which their voice, their feelings, their thinking, their anticipations and their aspirations inserted in defined times and spaces are immersed, also from the silence they inhabit. This interweaving will allow us to investigate how, in spite of being transients in time and space of two languages, two cultures, two worlds, they inhabit their deafhood. In addition, it will contribute to see how Deaf people, who are seen as the others, resist while they walk daily among the tumult and fight to occupy a space, their space, and show themselves before a world that has made them invisible or visible from the lack; they fight for their voice, even when it does not sound like the others, to be heard and resonate; They fight for space in universities, at work, in hospitals, in transportation, in the media and in all those spaces where it is not common to hear with the eyes and speak with the hands; and they defend being the protagonists of the future, of their future.
