Jaipreet Virdi 2019 Faculty Research Award Winner

The 2019 Women's Studies Faculty Research Award recipient Jaipreet Virdi, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Delaware, is a historian of medicine, technology, and disability. Her research and teaching interests include the history of medicine, the history of science, disability history, disability technologies, and material/visual culture studies.

Please join us via Zoom Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 4:00pm ET for "Gendering Deafness," The Carter Series’ Faculty Research Award lecture by Dr. Jaipreet Virdi, Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Delaware.   

For nearly sixty years, painter Dorothy Eugiené Brett (1883-1977) made use of multiple hearing prostheses she collectively referred to as her “ear machines” as technologies of assimilation, objects of power to affirm her class and gender roles, and tools for negotiating the often-contested boundaries between hearing and deafness. Dr. Virdi will discuss Brett’s technologies and artistic representations of sound to examine how her performative enactments of deafness enabled her to affirm her identity as a deaf woman.

The Carter Series’ Faculty Research Award Lecture is funded by the Mae and Robert Carter Endowment in Women’s Studies and presented by the University of Delaware’s Department of Women & Gender Studies.
