We are happy to share that Tomasz Krawczyk won funds from the National Science Centre as part of the PRELUDIUM 22 competition. He will run a project entitled “Nothing about us without us? Ethics of research with underrepresented groups at the example of deaf people”.
Nothing about us without us? Ethics of research with underrepresented groups at the example of deaf people
Despite dynamic progress in the science, various social groups remain underrepresented in research and are beyond the reach of scientific actions. Deaf people are the example of such group. Barriers to the research participation cause serious ethical and methodical risks related to the engagement of deaf people into research.
Our aim is to address epistemic injustice faced by deaf people in research. We will conduct in-depth interviews with deaf people and Deaf studies experts on the topic of their research experiences. The results will inform an ethical analysis within the prof. Mor’s framework of “Nothing about us without us”. Proposed project may become a basis for establishing inclusive, socially sensitive recommendations for the engagement of deaf people in research.
