Shining a Light on Our Deafcentric Experiences, J. Palmer & B. Loeffler ; June 28- July 1, 2018

Presentation Summary: Throughout their lifetime, Deaf people wade a gauntlet of institutions and systems that frequently do not align with deaf culture or deaf values. While many of these experiences can be unfavorable, there are times when deaf adults connect with a neighbor, a service provider, or felt truly welcomed in a hearing-dominated space. In this workshop, we invite participants to reflect upon their formative experience and consider key elements and themes to inform what it means to be deafcentric. NDC seeks to integrate the unique and diverse perspective Codas may have on the notion of deafcentric in the development of online tools and resources.
