"Taming the Monster:  Eric Malzkuhn vs. Jabberwocky!"

In this presentation, we will discuss how Eric "Malz" Malzkuhn's attempts of translating Lewis Carroll's nonsense poem, Jabberwocky, from English to ASL, helped catapult his career as an ASL storyteller and actor.  Malz's translation brought him into the limelight and got him into the National Theater for the Deaf, as well as a place of honor in ASL Literature.  We may wonder what is so special about Malz's translation and the poem itself, and we will go through that in this presentation.

Presented in American Sign Language.  This event is limited to 100 seats only!  No children please!
