LOOKING FOR DEAF RESEARCHERS
Director(s): Hélène HUGOUNENQ – Writer(s): Hélène HUGOUNENQ Contact Print page
Our investigation begins at the EHESS, the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences, on December 10, 2014, when Yann Cantin defended his doctoral thesis in history. The palpable tension in the audience proves that this date, that is so important for Yann, is equally important for the entire deaf community…
Why is the defence of a deaf historian still such an exceptional event? Deaf researchers can be counted on the fingers of one hand!
By telling their story, this film highlights a largely ignored reality: that of a minority that does not have access to a large area of culture and ideas .
