Abstract

In this paper, the question of whether a hearing researcher can conduct research about the experiences and perspectives of deaf persons is examined. The author (a hearing research) argues that it is possible for hearing persons to do responsible and high quality research in the area of deafness, provided that steps are taken to include deaf persons in the design and/or review of the work. The author then describes the strategies she uses to insure that her work is not dominated by the hearing perspective.
