Haualand and co-writers discuss their groundbreaking work on large-scale institutional deaf events and how their thinking about these has changed as well as how the fabric of social, political, and recreational international deaf events may be becoming more fragmented and based upon specific interests or skills. As such, the chapter invites us to consider deaf gatherings as problematic spaces in which sameness and difference are negotiated, different identities, affiliations, and positions are performed, and deaf attendees confront (or ignore) questions of political economic inequality.
