Gallaudet University Press: Sharing Knowledge by and about Deaf People and Signing Communities through Scholarly Publishing

Retention of four full-time press employees, who will edit and produce two books, a new book series, and two journals.

Gallaudet University Press is a nonprofit scholarly publisher with a mission to publish content related to Deaf, hard of hearing, and DeafBlind people. Our publishing program advances knowledge in the fields of Deaf cultural studies, Deaf history, signed language linguistics, interpreting studies, and more. As the only scholarly publisher that specializes in these fields, GU Press provides a unique and critical service to scholars who are able to advance their careers through publication, and to Deaf community members who benefit from research findings and real-world applications. The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically reduced our cash flow and projected revenue through disrupted supply chains, shuttered storefronts and libraries, and financial insecurities experienced on both individual and institutional levels. This funding will support Gallaudet University Press to produce two book projects, a new book series, and two journals.
