IDGS outreach in focus: Greetings from Amsterdam
On Monday 13 February 2023, Calvin Khan and Annika Herrmann gave a presentation at SignLab Amsterdam on "Outreach in sign language research. Targeting accessible science communication". The team of Floris Roelofsen, Roland Pfau and Marloes Oomen invited us to discuss examples of outreach, accessibility and knowledge transfer in the field of sign language research. We presented PR strategies from our house, as currently developed for the DGS corpus project, examples of transfer activities of the institute as well as first analyses on different production possibilities of authentic DGS videos for social media. All participants gained a good insight into our public relations work in the context of research and teaching. After the stimulating discussion, we continued by ferry to a joint dinner in very nice company.
