Voces Novae!

AmEADH_Fig083t

This is a VERY quick post just to say that today I’m a published writer!  My Senior Thesis – a 44 page research project on Deaf films made between 1913 and 1920 – was just published in Chapman’s online history journal, Voces Novae.  I basically argue that although the films were made to preserve Sign Language, they also inadvertently preserved Deaf Culture.  If you’re into that sort of thing, or just want to ogle my name a little, here’s the link: http://journals.chapman.edu/ojs/index.php/VocesNovae/issue/current.  I’M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT!!  (If you couldn’t already tell…)

  1. Oh yeah, I’m totally going to read this. I’ve already downloaded it. I know this is an old post, but congratulations nevertheless. Interesting thesis subject!

  2. Thanks so much for the read!

  3. Half way through, and enjoying it thoroughly! Among many interesting things, the fact that the NAD collected $5k in *dimes* says so much about Deaf culture and the deep desire preserve sign. The rediscovery of the films, after generations, in the vault at Gallaudet sounds like finding buried treasure in your back yard. I’m imagining what it must have been like for the person who discovered them, the excitement, the reverence. I hope you tell more about that part! Off to read more…
