DESCRIPTION:
Education is often viewed as the “breeding ground” for values, ideologies and beliefs from society to build on or balance out the same cultivated by the student’s family. Textbooks, lesson plans, and even the teacher’s attitude contribute greatly to the indoctrination of every student in varying levels. When it comes to the Deaf child, due to specific federal laws, the breeding ground is often one of hearing-centered values and ideologies. Every type of school, from a school for the deaf to a public school where the Deaf child is the only Deaf person is potentially a place where the child constantly experiences audism. This phenomenon warrants immediate attention and consideration by activists, educators, researchers and more.

AUDISM WEBINAR SERIES
Gallaudet University's Center for Continuing and Online Education, in partnership with the Deaf Studies Digital Journal and with support from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, Research and Continuing and Online Education are proud to present an upcoming series of webinars on Audism in our communities. A group of world-class scholars have joined this series to discuss the impacts audism has upon Deaf people. It is important to note that the concept of audism has long been part of the Deaf community landscape, even before Dr. Tom L. Humpries coined the term in 1975. The collective discourses on the oppression experienced by Deaf people date back to the early nineteenth century, yet has not been analyzed in-depth even in today’s age.  To reaffirm society's commitment toward social equity, our educational webinars will allow a sustainable conversation on audism as a critical step toward a plural and inclusive society.

This is a series of seven live-webinars ranging from theoretical to practical that will be offered throughout the Spring 2021, and they will be delivered in American Sign Language. The format of these Zoom webinars will be 90 minutes long. They are divided into four parts: (1) Introductions: 5 minutes, (2) Main lecture: 50 minutes, (3) Q & A: 30 minutes (this will be moderated and translated into ASL from Q & A Panel in Zoom), and (4) Wrap up: 5 minutes.

DESCRIPTION:
In the Deaf community, discourse on audism is rooted in oral traditions. Various literary expressions are visually channeled via testimonials, storytelling, and poetry in sign language, as a form of resistance and a process of self-liberation from audism. Too often, those experiences are not documented, categorized, nor explored in-depth for many reasons. In this webinar, Dr. Bahan analyzes the Deaf community’s chronicles of audism as part of a collective memory. He discusses numerous literary sources readily available. Thematic themes are summarized and explored, ultimately identifying proactive solutions to alleviate the rampant audism in our society.

PRESENTER:
Dr. Benjamin Bahan

Dr. Benjamin J. Bahan, professor of Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University, is known for his works in ASL Literature, Linguistics, Deaf Cultural Studies and Sensory Orientations.

DESCRIPTION:
In this introductory webinar, Drs. Gertz and Bauman provide an initial framework on the ideological, institutional and individual dimensions of audism.  After providing a brief history of the word, “audism,” from its inception in the 1970’s to current applications, presenters introduce key dimensions of ideological audism, including notions of ‘phonocentrism’ and ‘linguicism”, which are then manifested into institutional arrangements--especially in education and medicine.  These institutions, in turn, deeply affect individuals as they internalize audism, a phenomenon known as ‘dysconscious audism.’ This framework is intended to develop a common understanding of audism and to provoke interdisciplinary and intersectional inquiry and dialogue.

PRESENTERS:
Dr. Dirksen Bauman and Dr. Genie Gertz

H-Dirksen L. Bauman is Professor of Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University. He is co-editor of Signing the Body Poetic: Essays in American Sign Language and Deaf-Gain: Raising the Stakes for Human Diversity, and editor of Open Your Eyes: Deaf Studies Talking. He is the executive producer and co-director of the film, Audism Unveiled.

Genie Gertz is the interim Dean of the Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach at Gallaudet University. A 1992 Gallaudet University communication arts graduate, she holds a master’s degree in human resources management and organizational development in higher education from New York University, and a doctorate from UCLA in cultural studies within education, with a concentration on racial/ethnic studies. The phrase dysconscious audism emerged as a result of her doctoral work. She is co-editor of seminal publication of the Deaf Studies Encyclopedia which covered a wide range of issues about the Deaf community.
