FSDG finds a new home in Rochester, NY!

Deaf geographies sandbox

The Field School in Deaf Geographies has found a new home. We are very fortunate to have landed at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Rochester, NY, and home of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID). Rochester has a ‘deep’ Deaf history and the community here is counted as the largest per capita in the US. It is most definitely a ‘sign language-friendly’ city.
FSDG has landed in a wonderful laboratory in which to study how signing peoples negotiate spaces and places. I hope you will help the school celebrate it’s new location! Please stay tuned for additional information. If you would like to get in touch about anything regarding the school, please contact me at mekgsh@rit.edu.

* What are the implications of this claim for ontology, epistemology, ethics, politics, language and the arts?

* Given that Deleuze is talking about absolute difference (A differs from itself) rather than comparative differenc (A differs from B), can we…
