Sign Languages Lunch & Learn

January 24, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

REQUEST: Please join us for a Lunch & Learn event from 12 noon to 1:00 pm on FRIDAY, JANUARY 24 in Room 338 of the Psychology Building (which is on the northwest corner of Johnson and Charter).

BACKGROUND: We will soon be interviewing new faculty members who study American or other Sign Languages and issues of access and opportunity for Deaf people. Because of the historical lack of signing and Deaf faculty, staff, and students on the UW-Madison campus, many of us might not be aware of best practices for interacting with Deaf and signing people.

Therefore, this Lunch & Learn event is an opportunity to ask questions, learn, and leave feeling more confident in future interactions with Deaf and signing people. Feel free to bring your own lunch, and cookies will be provided.

ALL Staff, Students, and Faculty are welcome and encouraged to attend!

For additional information, including accommodation requests, please contact Morton Ann Gernsbacher at magernsb@wisc.edu.
