In 2016, Rick Godden and Jonathan Hsy wrote an article, Universal Design and Its Discontents and we are excited to see that they mentioned Deaf Studies Digital Journal!

Here is a brief excerpt:

“One website under discussion was the Deaf Studies Digital Journal (DSDJ) published by the ASL (American Sign Language) & Deaf Studies Department at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC.[6] This journal’s use non-textual digital media for its linguistic content make it an intriguing case study. DSDJ is the first peer-reviewed academic journal to use ASL for its content (with some material in English).[7] Since ASL is a kinetic language using embodied actions including manual gestures and facial expressions as grammar, Flash Video clips are crucial for content.”

There’s more! Please take the time to check out their article. Enjoy the read!
