After two years of research, Brianna DiGiovanni, a graduate intern in the Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center, created a "Story Map" about Deaf New York City. See Brianna's announcement and be sure and view the Story Map! https://arcg.is/049fen
Deaf life during the pandemic was the subject of a May 12, 2020 panel discussion hosted by the Center. Five Deaf New Yorkers: Roxanna Aguilo, Carlos Aponte-Salcedo, Jr., Patrice Creamer, Marina Fanshteyn, and Alexandria Pucciarelli-Miller shared cultural, physical and access issues. The panelists, one from each NYC borough, responded to questions from Gallaudet History major and soon-to-be graduate student Brianna DiGiovanni, '20. The 1 hour panel is online here.
This panel was part of a documentation effort that received major support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (Grant # - ZH-252962) and ZVRS/Purple. Additional support came from the Gary S. & Margaret D. Anderson Family Foundation, the Kantor Foundation, the Hebrew Association of the Deaf, Union League of the Deaf, and numerous individuals.
