    Event Information

    The historical and linguistic changes in Black ASL align with the U.S. educational, political, and cultural landscapes which are identified as the sociolinguistic and geographical factors in the formation of Black ASL. As the recognizable part of the linguistic structure of Black ASL, phonology, morphology, and discourse are the features that make it a distinct variety of ASL based on the publications in the 1970s and 2010s. The presentation concludes with the future directions in the study of Black ASL that continues to evolve over time with the ever-shifting culture and ideology.
