Do you understand what I’m saying? : – An essay about the experiences of social identity, stigmatization and discrimination amongst hearing-impaired (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete i sociologi handlar om hur hörselskadade individer upplever sin grupptillhörighet och huruvida de upplevelser sig diskriminerade eller stigmatiserade. Detta utifrån att hörselskada inte är en tydlig eller alltid en synlig funktionsnedsättning och hörselskadade ofta tenderar att försöka passa in. Syftet med denna uppsats är att få en bild av hur hörselskadade vuxna ser på sin utsatthet samt deras uppfattning om att tillhöra gruppen hörselskadade. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats med intervjuer som metod. Några få personer med hörselnedsättning har intervjuats om sina upplevelser i semistrukturerade intervjuer via chatt-programmet Msn - messenger.

Resultatet visar att respondenterna har olika sätt att se på sin identitet som hörselskadad men att alla upplever sig ha erfarenheter av diskriminering och stigmatisering utifrån sin funktionsnedsättning. De slutsatser som dragits är att respondenternas svar visar att hörselskada skulle kunna vara stigmatiserande och i många fall diskriminerande.

Detta antas även vara förknippat med individens personlighet och andra faktorer men upplevelserna som sådana liknar varandra och hur de fick individerna att känna sig.

Abstract [en]

This essay in sociology is about how hearing-impaired individuals experience their social group-identity and whether their experiences are making them feel discriminated or stigmatized. Because hearing impairment is not a disability that is always obvious or visible to others the hearing impaired individuals often try to fit in. The purpose of this paper is to get an idea of if hearing-impaired adults experience being discriminated and stigmatized and also their perception of belonging to the hearing-impaired group. The study has a qualitative approach with interviews as a method. A few participants with hearing-impairment have been interviewed about their experiences in semi-structured interviews via the chat program Msn - messenger.

The results show that participants have different ways of describing their identity as hearing impaired. Although, all of them has experiences discrimination and stigmatization based on their disability. The conclusions are that these participants' answers indicate hearing-impairment as stigmatizing and source of discrimination.

This is believed to be associated with the personality of the individual and other factors, it is still a similarity in experience as such and how the participants felt about it.
