ASL Shakespeare on Facebook and Twitter - @SHXGallaudet

My field of specialization is eighteen-century British literature, with a focus on early economic writing. I have published several articles on the topic. To further my expertise in the subject, I'm currently working on my MA in Economics at George Mason University.

Recently, I've become interested in Shakespeare in ASL and Deaf performance. I was the Gallaudet project director for the Folger Library's First Folio: The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare National Tour. Gallaudet had the honor of being the DC host site. I also received a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to organize a two week institute on theater by and for the DeafBlind. The institute takes place in May 2018 on the Gallaudet campus. Follow ASL Shakespeare on Facebook and Twitter for more info! @SHXGallaudet
