Growing up Deaf or deaf? Expectations for Cultural Life Scripts

Dr. Clark will present findings from her recent work on the phenomenon of cultural life scripts. This study examined the possibility of a Deaf American Life Script developed in relationship to the use of a visual language, traditions developed to navigate in a hearing world, and the values developed within the Deaf community. Opportunities for questions and discussion will follow the presentation.
