One of our goals with The Mind Hears blog is to build a community and reduce isolation for deaf and hard of hearing academics.
To provide an opportunity for our community to meet and interact, we are developing a series of “open house” drop in sessions on Zoom, where people can come along to network, chat, and share experiences. You can meet other deaf and hard of hearing academics including folks who have contributed to and been profiled by the Mind Hears. Students are welcome!
Our first session will be Friday 7th October, and will run for 1.5 hours (see a list of times in different time zones below). Pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee, and stay for as little or long as you would like. Unfortunately, we can’t provide cake as this is a global event.
To provide a safe space for the event, we are asking people to register in advance. Registration is free, and you will receive a link to access the event on registration. Please follow this link to register.
Captions will be enabled, and we will also have American Sign Language interpreters for the session.
Looking forwards to seeing you,
-Michele, Ana and Steph (the Mind Hears team)
