21.06.2017 - 22.06.2017 | Reykjavík, Iceland
The EU-funded SIGN-HUB project will host its sixth annual FEAST conference in Reykjavik, Iceland, from 21 to 22 June 2017.
The annual FEAST (Formal and Experimental Advances in Sign Language Theory) conference is a regular forum to discuss formal approaches to sign language grammar (in particular in the generative tradition), experimental approaches to sign languages, and their interaction. The conference also acts as the annual meeting of the four-year SIGN-HUB project, financed by Horizon 2020 and due to continue until March 2020.
Overall, the SIGN-HUB project aims to provide the first comprehensive response to the societal and scientific challenge resulting from generalised neglect of the cultural and linguistic identity of signing Deaf communities in Europe.
