Bridging the Gap 5 – Heriot-Watt University

Bridging the Gap 5: Looking forward together

This conference to be hosted at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh is the 5th in the Bridging the Gap series. The conferences were established to ensure that discussions about research ‘bridge the gap’ between academia and the British Deaf Community. They aim to encourage collaboration and discussion between (deaf and hearing) academics and deaf people.

The 5th conference will take place on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th November 2017 and the theme is ‘Looking forward together’. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions about setting a research agenda in a fun and slightly different way. We will also work together to draft a manifesto for research with the British deaf community.

We would like to encourage as many local Scottish deaf people to come along as possible – so please promote the information about this event through your networks!

The languages of the conference will be BSL and English. Interpreters will be provided.

Please register here for the conference using Eventbrite!
