A research scholar from University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Dr. Jeffrey Davis, is coming to town for a surprise presentation on Indian Sign Language. He has rare video footage he wants to show us demonstrating how American Sign Language vocabulary etymology relates to Plains Indian Sign Language.
The talk will be TODAY, Friday, May 31st from 3:30-4:30PM in Gowen Hall 301. He will stay for questions afterwards until 5:30.
Since this is a very last minute arrangement, we haven’t arranged ASL interpreters. Second year ASL skills are recommended so you can understand the presentation and discussion better. Sorry about the last minute notice. Dr. Davis is thinking of doing a formal presentation next time he stops by town ahead of time. But for now, it will just be a casual presentation.
Remember this event is not interpreted so you need second year ASL skills or above to be able to understand the presentation.
