    The Field School in Deaf Geographies – and the international Workshop on Deaf Geographies 

    The last month has been incredibly busy in the Deaf Geographies world… from the 12th of June, the inaugural Field School in Deaf Geographies, ran for 4 weeks, this was followed by the first international Workshop on Deaf Geographies.

    Hosted by Queen’s university Canada’s Bader International Study Centre (BISC) and directed by Mary Beth Kitzel – contributor to this blog, BISC faculty and PhD candidate at Sussex, the Field School was an enormous success, and promises to be the first of many.

    I hope to get some student voices on the blog to tell you more about the impact of the school soon.

    Following the Field School, the first international Workshop on Deaf Geographies was held, also at BISC. Drawing participants and presenters from the UK, Ireland, the US, and Canada, the workshop included student presentations from the Field School, and papers on different and emerging areas of Deaf geographies, and offered an opportunity for discussion of the challenges and opportunities facing the field, and its possible futures.

    More information on the workshop will be available soon too… but, in the meantime, if you want to read back through some of the live tweets, then search Twitter for #deafgeogs.

    We have to say an enormous thank you to BISC who hosted us, and who have provided enormous and generous support to our work. Without their help, the Field School and workshop would probably not have happened.

    We’re currently working through the material gathered… and we’ll be back to share it soon.
