From Bell to biodiversity

part of their identity, or as a useful rhetorical tool. Certainly, when some Deaf activists now claim Deaf (deaf?) people to be an ethnogenetic group of shared ancestry, this is an act of re-appropriating genetic knowledge in a society that still, predominantly, sees such genes as a defect. Yet the roots for this ethnobiological identity politics also share a longer history of geneticists propagating genetic knowledge as essential self-knowledge, and encouraging genetic awareness as a form of political empowerment.

the pathologizing realms of science and medicine. Rather, it is a reclaiming actively encouraged by geneticists, part of a larger psychologization of genetic knowledge and identities that already started in the 1950s. A history of genetic deafness thus also is a cultural history of citizenship and identity politics, and of health professionals embracing health and disability activism as part of professional identity. Surveying these developments, it provides a deeper understanding of current discussions about the promises and limits of biomedicine, about

increasingly diversified and politicized arena of deafness and disability, health care and health care activism. Promoting genetic self-awareness as an important part of individual identity and political empowerment, it actively took part in this politicisation – and, I argue, helped prepare a biology-based identity politics in Deaf activism. Counselling the deaf – or being counselled by the deaf? ‘No single group’, Walter Nance claimed in 1971, ‘can profit more from [genetic] counseling than the hearing impaired’. 2 It was, he believed, ‘one universally
