Gallaudet University’s Center for Continuing and Online Education, in partnership with the Deaf Studies Digital Journal and with support from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, Research and Continuing and Online Education are proud to present an upcoming series of webinars on Audism in our communities. A group of world-class scholars have joined this series to discuss the impacts audism has upon Deaf people. It is important to note that the concept of audism has long been part of the Deaf community landscape, even before Dr. Tom L. Humpries coined the term in 1975. The collective discourses on the oppression experienced by Deaf people date back to the early nineteenth century, yet has not been analyzed in-depth even in today’s age. To reaffirm society’s commitment toward social equity, our educational webinars will allow a sustainable conversation on audism as a critical step toward a plural and inclusive society.
The National Deaf Education Conference is pleased to offer teacher CEUs for this webinar series at $10 per webinar. If interested in obtaining NDEC CEUs, please fill out the form below.
