Abstract or Description

Through auto-ethnography, critical intersectional reflections and some drawing, this chapter attempts to disentangle the conceptual knot of “academic exhaustion,” and the idea of normality that it contains. Reflecting on experiences of deafness in the academy, I also consider how centering being differently-abled in research can allow for more attentive listening.
