How does communication echo and resonate across deaf and hearing experiences?

My inspiration

After learning American Sign Language at the age of 16, Paula went on to study sign language translation, cross cultural communications and policy making. Paula obtained a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in communications and is currently completing a PhD in social and cultural analysis at Concordia, with a research focus on the experience of communicating, sensory ethnography and research-creation. Paula’s work is observational, conversational and brings images, texts and the senses together to explore moments when dominant social ideas, beliefs and social structures are lived, felt and discussed by people. Paula lives and works in the intermingling spaces of sign and spoken languages, ASL, LSQ, English and French.
