The International Conference in Deaf Geographies (ICDG) is hosted by the Field School in Deaf Geographies (FSDG), a 5-week summer program of the History Department in the College of Liberal Arts at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York. The conference brings together researchers from around the world whose interests engage with the themes of Deaf Geographies. It serves as an invaluable forum where all those interested in this research arena can connect with the network of Deaf Geographers and appreciate the diversity of expertise that is emanating from a broad array of disciplinary perspectives in the humanities and social sciences.
The FSDG’s goals are to thoughtfully and critically engage with Human Geographic research from a Deaf cultural perspective, and to encourage the enthusiasm and efforts of researchers at all levels of study in this exciting new area of research. The conference offers participating students the opportunity to present their project’s research findings and to collect feedback from the visiting academics.
The registration fees for the conference are $40.00 (USD). Click here to register.
