This concluding chapter returns to the concept of the commonplace, in navigating the lines separating deafness from disability and similar. In many cases deafness is not always easy to see, as it can be contested that subjects like the Allen Sisters, Mabel Hubbard Bell, and the Nazi T-4 program might not really be “Deaf Studies” because technically they focused on “oral deaf people.” The chapter argues that these borders defining the field of Deaf Studies are precisely the place of “happening” when it comes to deaf identity, Deaf Studies, and deaf culture. We do not know and cannot know what is inside Deaf culture or deaf identity unless we also know what its borders and boundaries are. What is between matters.

Keywords:   commonplace, Nazi T-4 program, disability, Deaf Studies, deaf culture, deaf identity, between spaces
