Nicaraguan Sign Language is a relatively new language that emerged a little over 30 years ago. The dramatic story of the birth of this language includes disease, revolution, and the simple desire of children to communicate with each other. Professor Anna Shusterman will talk about the birth of NSL and the rapid change that has taken place in the language over the last few years. Professor Shusterman will also discuss some current research to illustrate what NSL is teaching us about the nature of language, thought, and human communication. Friday, February 6, at 4:30 p.m. at the Center for Community Partnerships, 167 High Street.
