Redefining the Literary Expressions of Deafhood: The Impact of the Digital Age was held at NTID October 3 to 4, 2008. The conference was funded by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities and focused on the effects of technology on American Sign Language storytelling in the Deaf community. Pamela R. Conley, Principal Investigator for the project, was instrumental in providing the intellectual direction of this project -- the three-day symposium that has produced scholarship specific to blogging and vlogging by Deaf people. She was responsible for identifying and inviting keynote presenters, panelists, performers, and experts for exploring new trends on the intersection of digital technologies and humanities for Deaf people.
Events included live performances by Deaf artists and poets, panel discussions, and keynote speakers Christopher Krentz of the University of Virginia and Kristen Harmon of Gallaudet University.
