Comunidad y cultura sorda


There is currently a great emphasis on knowledge transfer during the research process. The ultimate aim of knowledge transfer is to appropriately inform and in the long term empower the Deaf community. This chapter discusses the origins of linguistic and cultural research into the Deaf community as a research population. It focuses on the examination of the public engagement process as undertaken in British universities, with specific reference to the Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL). Public engagement has become more relevant in recent years as research funders became more aware and more concerned about how researchers and the public interact with each other. Finally this work will be used to make some recommendations concerning information dissemination and the transfer of knowledge to the Deaf community.
