Deaf in Japan

September 19, 2023, 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Online via Zoom

The Deaf in Japan are a linguistic and cultural minority, with their own language that is different from spoken Japanese. This lecture considers issues facing the Deaf community, including types of sign(ed) language used in Japan, cultural and historical issues in Deaf education in Japan, Deaf culture and future trends.

This event is supported by the Atlanta Global Studies Center and will be in English.

Initiated in April 2021 with funding from the Japan Foundation New York, Georgia Tech’s Japanese Speaker Series fosters dialogue among Georgia Tech students and the local Atlanta community. This series aims to deepen understanding of Japanese culture and language, enhance critical thinking about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and promote global understanding and intercultural competency.
