My name is Brian Riley. I studied linguistics at Gallaudet University in the mid-1980's and am still interested in the field.
As you may know, there was recently a protest at Gallaudet which involved discontent with the selection of a new president. The events at Gallaudet highlight issues of language policy (i.e., how American Sign Language is used at Gallaudet) and also how minority cultures relate to the majority culture here in America, especially as it involves the question of members of Deaf culture are simultaneously members of and relate to other members of the majority culture.
