Brian Greenwald, Gallaudet University

Grant details:

Deaf NYC: Apart + Connected (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Deaf NYC: Apart + Connected
Abstract: How has life changed during this pandemic for the NYC Deaf community? When everyone wears face masks, how does that affect interactions? When is information fully accessible and how can communication be better? Are there signs that are new, or signs that have taken on new meaning? Are there ways that Deaf cultural life is uniquely helpful during this time?

Deaf NYC StoryMaps (Exhibition)
Title: Deaf NYC StoryMaps
Curator: Brianna DiGiovanni
Abstract: This StoryMap is an interactive site that shows images and videos that relate to certain Deaf spaces. This NYC StoryMap has layers - one for clubs, schools, Deaf gathering sites, and religious/cultural groups, all relating to Deaf spaces. Deaf NYC Spaces in each layer change over time as Deaf groups move to a new location or close down the organization. The history of Deaf life in NYC is fascinating and complex. By studying Deaf spaces we can better understand the stories of Deaf people from NYC and also New York City's ever-changing landscape.
