My current Ph.D. topic is Discursive manifestations around identity construction of Costa Rican deaf signers as a linguistic and cultural community: 1960-2020. Theoretical constructs from sociolinguistics (as applied for sign languages), social psychology (Deaf identity) and Deaf culture studies will be used, as also the general conceptions from discourse analysis of authors as Teun van Dijk and Ruth Wodak, will be examined. A special topic draw my attention is the language ideology, since identity construction may be considered as an ideological construction, and since here has been a surge of research about sign language ideology. In my research, I plan to use a discussion group method to get qualitative data with Deaf users of Costa Rican Sign Language (LESCO) from varied sociolinguistic backgrounds (besides my own autoetnography as Deaf user of LESCO). However, at the current internship phase, I need to explore in-depth how these issues of sign language ideologies theories, and ethnographic methods may contribute to clarify the research of identity construction of deaf people (as Costa Rican Sign Language signers/users) as an ideology.
