Focusing on videos situated in a broad contemporary media space, it also draws attention to the contrasts between film and digital practices that connect even highly emotionalised moments – like the ‘hearing for the first time’ event – with concrete technological, social, political and organisational conditions. Looking at the specific staging of the event, the author explores the complex sociotechnical arrangements enrolling heterogeneous actors engaged in the video-documented struggle for hearing.</dcterms:abstract> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
