WFD Expert Group welcomes Dr Nick Palfreyman
Congratulations to our research fellow Dr Nick Palfreyman on becoming a member of the World Federation of the Deaf’s Sign Language and Deaf Studies Expert Group last week. He joins five other expert members and the coordinator, Dr Robert Adam, who advise the WFD Board and Working Committees. They also provide guidance for the WFDYS Board and WFD Secretariat, and help to fulfil United Nations and WFD aims related to their expert area. Further expert groups on Accessibility, Deaf Education and Human Rights also give advice.
We would also like to thank our director, Professor Ulrike Zeshan, for her contributions as she stands down from the Sign Language and Deaf Studies Expert Group, and our senior lecturer/researcher Sibaji Panda for his time as a member of the former Expert Group for Developing Countries.
