d/Deaf and/Dumb: A Portrait of a Deaf Kid as a Young SuperheroMay 2, 4:00pm - 6:00pm
West Oʻahu Campus, D-102
Dr. Joe Valente will share his dumb, 'deaf kid' origins in Bayport, New York to his current life as a “young superhero” writer. Portraying the conflicting cultural worlds of hearing and Deaf, he will describe his life in an in-between underworld and his identity as it alternates between being oppressed and empowered. These feelings are inescapably and forever the reality of those who live on the margins of our larger society.
