Asian L&L hosts our first Korean Sign Language colloquium 

Submitted by Jennifer A. Miller on

On December 10, 2020, Dr. Chang Hwang, a Deaf KSL teacher, native user of signed language, as well as a researcher and writer from South Korea, gave a presentation on the history of Korean Sign Language (KSL), how KSL grammar structure compares to spoken Korean and other signed languages, as well as changes and challenges KSL and KSL studies currently face. The presentation sparked many thoughtful questions and imparted new knowledge about KSL.
