Paul Dudis' interest in the iconic representation of entities in signed language was developed during his work as an ASL instructor soon after graduation from Michigan School for the Deaf in Flint, MI. He studied at Gallaudet University and the University of California at Berkeley, focusing on iconicity and depiction, i.e. the virtual manifestation of events, settings, or objects within the signer's physical environment. Upon completing his 2004 dissertation on the depiction of events in ASL, he returned to Gallaudet as a professor specializing in cognitive linguistic approaches to language.
