A visual people and a visual language
23 July 2009
Tuesday 24 November
Professor Bencie Woll (UCL Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences – Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre)
There are many myths surrounding British Sign Language (BSL) – the third most widely used indigenous language in the UK. In this lecture, Professor Woll will try to dispel some of them by introducing BSL, explaining how it works and exploring the community it has created.
Note: This lecture will have a sign interpreter, there is also an induction loop in the theatre so please switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.
