Descrizione evento

Descrizione

The University of Catania, the Department of Humanities, the School of Foreign Language and Literature in Ragusa and the Language and Communication Across Modalities Lab (LaCAM) of the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC) of the CNR are proud to host the second edition of the Workshop on Cognitive and Functional Approaches to Sign Language Linguistics, Sign CAFÉ 2 from 21 to 23 May 2020 at the University of Catania, in Ragusa.

This workshop has been set up by Adam Schembri of the University of Birmingham as a regular forum to discuss approaches towards sign language linguistics in the cognitive and functional linguistics tradition. These approaches frame language as a type of social action in relation to other cognitive systems. A wide range of theoretical approaches are included in this definition: they all have in common the importance they ascribe to the role of communication and cognition in linguistic theory and in descriptions of language structure.

Invited speakers will be:

  • Gabrielle Hodge (University College London DCAL, UK)
  • Marie-Anne Sallandre and Brigitte Garcia (Université Paris 8, CNRS, France)
  • Erin Wilkinson (University of New Mexico, USA)
  • Virginia Volterra (ISTC, CNR, Italy)

Conference Language

The official languages of the conference will be English and International Sign (IS), with Italian Sign Language (LIS) as additional language.

Authors who submit abstracts that are accepted will be required to pay the registration fee for the conference that all attendees are required to pay. Since only the abstracts of registered presenting authors will be included in the final program, we expect that the first author of the accepted abstract will register for the conference within 15 March 2020 (i.e., the deadline of the Early Bird fee).

Registration fees (include 4 coffee breaks, 2 lunch and a conference welcome bag)
