Carol Padden, Professor of Communication and Associate Dean of Social Sciences at UCSD, was been awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2010. Prof. Padden is a specialist on sign language and deaf culture. Her most recent work focuses on Al-Sayyid Bedouin Sign Language, a language created in a Bedouin community a few generations ago which offers an opportunity to study the emergence and stabilization of linguistic conventions within a community of language-users. Prof. Padden is the second faculty member in UCSD’s Communication Department to be recognized with a MacArthur “genius” grant.
