Schuchman Documentary Center
The Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center educates students in the documentary arts and shines a light on significant historical issues and endangered cultural knowledge specific to deaf people.
At the Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center, our mission is to educate people about significant historical issues and endangered cultural knowledge specific to deaf people, using the documentary arts.
We do this by discovering deaf-specific topics through fieldwork and historic research, documenting them through film, photography, and narrative writing, and sharing them through film screenings, lectures, discussions, exhibitions, articles, multimedia website presentations, and online bilingual (American Sign Language/English) publications.
We also provide educational opportunities in the documentary process for students and collaborate with them in our work. Our goal is to shed light on deaf people’s experiences and to increase understanding and appreciation for their culture and history.
