      EXPLORING AMERICAN DEAF LITERATURE

      People have often questioned the existence of literature within the
      Deaf Community. Cynthia Peters, Ph.D., a professor of English at
      Gallaudet University and author of "American Deaf Literature:
      From
      Carnival to the Canon" explores this question in her presentation
      on
      Saturday, March 23, 2002 at 2:00 PM at the University of
      Virginia's
      McLeod Hall Auditorium. Dr. Peters discusses the written and visual
      aspects, including genres such as poetry, drama and storytelling, of
      Deaf literature in America as well as drawing parallels with the
      literature of ethnic or racial minorities. This presentation is the
      latest collaboration between the ASL/Deaf Culture Lecture Series at
      the University of Virginia and the annual Virginia Festival of the
      Book.

      Dr. Peters, who graduated from Maryland School of the Deaf and
      Gallaudet University, holds a master's degree in English from the
      University of Maryland. She received her doctorate in 20th Century
      American Literature from George Washington University.

      The event, which is free and open to the public and will have voice
      interpretation for non-signers, is co-sponsored by the UVA Office of
      the Vice President and Provost, the UVA American Sign Language
      Program, the Parents' Program of the UVA Fund, the UVA Learning Needs
      and Evaluation Center, the UVA Women's Center and the UVA D.E.A.F.S.
