The Department of ASL & Deaf Studies is conducting a narrative documentation in Sign Language to preserve the history of the Gallaudet experience as told by Gallaudet Alumni. In celebration of the University's 150th, there will be a DSC crew who will approach Gallaudet Alumni like YOURSELF, to film your stories of your wonderful Gallaudet memories.
This collection of stories will be used for various purposes: historical research, linguistic research and cultural research. Most important of all, this corpus will preserve the collective Gallaudet memory for future generations to come.
Be on the lookout for the DSC Crew during the July Reunion on campus! Clad in Buff n Blue DSC T-shirts, the Crew will be roaming around day and night with videocameras to capture everyone's stories. Your stories are important to preserve Gallaudet's history.
By sharing your stories, it will benefit and impact other academic fields such as Linguistics, Anthropology, ASL, Deaf Studies and History to name a few. Because this will allow our future generations of Gallaudet scholars to understand our Gallaudet rich heritage.
How will it be done?
- The interview can be conducted one-to-one privately or in a group with your friends.
- We will ask basic questions about your Gallaudet experience and we will show you Tower Clock pictures to revive your glorious past.
- If you participate, you will get a DVD copy of your interview!
If you desire to schedule a specific time to contribute your stories, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
