Speaker to explore deaf culture

January 31, 2012

Katherine "Kitty" Aubry will discuss cultural similarities and differences, including the role -- or not -- of music in the deaf community, for the next event in the MacMurray Speaker Series, “Jacksonville Speaks.”

 Her talk, "A Hearing-Deaf Connection: Music in the church? Straight talk for hearing people," will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7 in the Thoresen Recital Hall at the Putnam/Springer Center, the corner of Clay and State streets on the MacMurray College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

 If you have not seen a visual presentation of music interpreted in American Sign Language, it will lift your spirits and give a whole new meaning to the term, "visual communication." 

 Prof. Aubry is a freelance interpreter and adjunct faculty member in the Interpreter Preparation Program at MacMurray College. Proficient in both English and ASL, her wide range of experiences as a life-long interpreter make her a knowledgeable and entertaining presenter of the serious and the lighter sides of cross-cultural communication and, sometimes, the lack of it.
