Deaf Stories Corpus

An ASL-Deaf Studies Project for the 150th Anniversary Reunion

A video crew in buff and blue T-shirts will interview people across campus to capture their memories for archival purposes and to help future generations understand and appreciate our rich Gallaudet heritage.

Videos also will be used for research in ASL, Deaf Studies, linguistics, anthropology, and history. You can be interviewed one-on-one, privately, or in a group with your friends. Questions will focus on your experiences at Gallaudet.

If you would like to schedule a specific time to share your stories, please contact us. The primary location is the Jordan Student Academic Center, room 1210.

This project is funded by the Sesquicentennial Steering Committee; the College of Research, Graduate School, Continuing Studies, and International Programs; and the College of Arts and Sciences and sponsored by the Department of ASL & Deaf Studies. It has been approved by the Institutional Review Board.
