The EdSign34 open lecture series is run by a group of Deaf and hearing lecturers and researchers from three of Edinburgh’s universities: Heriot-Watt University, Queen Margaret University, and the University of Edinburgh.
We organise seminars and workshops about issues related to BSL and Deaf Studies. Our events are open to the public and everyone is welcome. The audience for our Wednesday evening talks includes members of the Deaf community, researchers, students on the BSL tutor training course, interpreting students, teachers and interpreters.
In 1975 (34 years ago), Mary Brennan first started research into British Sign Language at Moray House in Edinburgh. This is why our lecture series in 2009-2010 is known as EdSign34.
