Professor Jaipreet Virdi opened our series of talks celebrating UK Disability History Month with an entertaining and informative talk about deafness, perceptions of hearing loss and hearing aids in 20th century America. If you missed the talk, the pre-recorded lecture will be available here for the duration of UKDHM.
