https://www.gallaudet.edu/150/get_involved/symposium.html Call for Papers: Gallaudet 150th Symposium On April 9 and 10, 2014, Gallaudet University will host a 2-day symposium titled Celebrating 150 Years of Visionary Leadership in Washington, D.C. This gathering of scholars marks the 150th anniversary of access to higher education for deaf students. The collegiate department of the Columbia Institution for Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb and the Blind, founded in 1864, came to be known as National Deaf-Mute College and is now Gallaudet University. Its creation was a turning point in deaf history, impacting the nation and the world. Organizers seek proposals for presentations that explore deaf history and culture, especially those that intersect with Gallaudetís history and legacy. All topics will be considered, but preference is given to presentations that tie in with symposiumís intent to examine the origins of Gallaudet University and its impact on the world. Additionally, we are interested in scholarship across all disciplines that have enhanced our understanding of deaf people. The University will waive symposium registration fees for those whose proposals have been accepted. Interested presenters should write a short proposal (no more than 250 words) or submit a signed proposal (no more than 2 minutes). The proposal should include the following information: title, content, and manner of presentation such as ASL or spoken English. Most presentations are expected to run approximately 25-30 minutes. Proposals and questions may be sent electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> or via mail to: William Ennis Gallaudet University Department of History 800 Florida Avenue, NE Washington, DC 20002-3695 Proposal Deadline: October 30, 2013 This symposium is sponsored by: Office of the President, Office of the Provost, with support provided by the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center, Gallaudet University Department of ASL & Deaf Studies, and the Department of History, Philosophy, Religion, and Sociology.
