The Field School in Deaf Geographies June 23 – July 27, 2014 Bader International Study Centre Queen’s University (Canada) Herstmonceux Castle Hailsham, East Sussex United Kingdom
Now in its second year, the Field School in Deaf Geographies is designed to allow students to participate in an intense, faculty-led, primary research project, including aspects of the research process from data collection to dissemination. In the BISC tradition of learning through direct experience, students’ coursework is designed to support the research project as well as cover the broader topics of analytical and theoretical frameworks of Human Geography, social science research methods, and European Deaf history. The culminating experience will include students attending and presenting their work at an international conference. This school is ideal for those students considering advanced degrees and/or careers in research.
The Bader International Study Centre (BISC), located at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England, represents a fusion of history and innovation. The setting may be an idyllic 15th century castle, but our focus is solely on developing students who are prepared to lead in the 21st century. Small class sizes, integrated hands-on field studies, primary research-based projects, and a diverse faculty and student population set the foundation for innovative global learning at the BISC.
The application deadline is 15 March. Please see our website for additional information about the school, including the two courses, applying, and costs. http://www.queensu.ca/bisc/academics/programs/upper-year/specialized-programs-2014/deaf-geographies
