Of all of the sensory, physical and mental disabilities, deafness stands alone as the most misunderstood, says James C. MacDougall of McGill’s Department of Psychology and the Canadian Deafness Research and Training Institute. In the Macnamara Lecture 2010, entitled From Aristotle to the Arctic: Adventures in Deafness and Disability, MacDougall will unravel some of the reasons for this unique situation in the context of 40 years of research, teaching, administration and advocacy in the field.
