Deaf geographies, and other worlds.
As you’ll know if you read this blog, I’ve recently been appointed Research Assistant (which is a slightly demeaning way of saying that I’m the main researcher!) on a three year project to research the spaces produced for Deaf people by the 19th century Church, and the spaces produced by Deaf people within that same Church.
That project now has a blog – at http://sdds.blogs.ilrt.org/
Catchy address isn’t it? Well, the ‘sdds’ bit is ‘Scripture, Dissent, Deaf Space’ – and then the blogs.ilrt.org bit is the home for blogs at the University of Bristol, and somewhere where I can get technical support.
Just visit and bookmark it, and you won’t have to worry about it again. I’ll get a ‘follow’ tool up there as soon as I work out how.
Until then, I’ll post here when I update it, and you can always follow me on Twitter @mikegulliver where I’ll be putting up any new posts with the hashtag #sddeafspace
As promised a few posts back, one of the things that I want to do with this project is to make it more accessible by posting regularly so that people see behind the scenes and understand the work that we do.
I also promised to post in BSL.
It’s still in construction (to an extent) but the first post is up, and in BSL (he said proudly, although not without some trepidation).
