Summary
  • In 2004, a conference was held in Sydney, Australia, entitled Perspectives on Ethics and Deafness. The questions underlying the conference were intriguing: What are the "ethical issues" that pertain to deafness? To what extent are such issues culturally relative? Are deaf and hearing individuals bound by the same ethical standards with regard to personal and professional relationships involving deaf people? How are ethical decisions concerning deaf children viewed differently depending on the hearing status of their parents? The conference program provided a clear response to the first issue. Predictably, perhaps, there were ethical issues identified in areas such as medical and technological interventions with deaf children, genetic screening and manipulation, respect and support for linguistic diversity, educational placements, interpreting, and so on. As these issues were presented, discussed, and debated over the three days of the conference, the question of ethical standards became of much greater interest. The issue of "perspective" became a clear issue in itself.
