Gally Reunification Conference Approaches
If you’re hooked up to http://www.deafread.com — and most ReunifyGally readers are — then you’ve already seen the news in 10 other deaf blogs. But one more time won’t hurt: on February 3, 2007, the conference “Blogging/Vlogging the Future of Gallaudet” will take place. Participants will have the chance to explore how Gallaudet can move on after the protests, with an emphasis on how blogging and vlogging have shaped the dialogue on Gallaudet University.
For those of you who can’t come in person: they now plan to broadcast the whole thing LIVE and on-line at http://ccigally.info. If you can’t even make it on time then no fear: they will caption the broadcast within a few days and post the whole thing on line so you can catch up later. For more details, see http://ccigally.info/node/14.
For those of you who are able to come to campus (the conference is FREE): this event is scheduled from 9 to 5, Saturday, February 3, 2007, in the Multi Purpose Room in the Student Academic Center. See http://ccigally.info/node/6 for more details on the conference. Once you’re at the CCI web site, click on “About CCI” (in the upper right hand corner of their page) to learn more about CCI as an organization.
