Sign Caf 2

Organiza��o: Universit degli Studi di Catania

Local: Universit degli Studi di Catania em Catania

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 relationship 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)

The conference welcomes contributions that address any aspect of the study of gesture and Sign Languages, as well as from related fields more broadly concerned with language, cognition and multimodality. We also invite language related submissions that are based on disciplines such as cognitive and social psychology, neurolinguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, artificial intelligence, and discourse and communication studies.
We aim to cover a wide range of research including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Theoretical perspective on cognitive/functional and usage-based linguistics
  • Works on phonetics, phonology, lexicon, grammar, semantics, pragmatics
  • Sociolinguistic variation and change;
  • Multimodality in first or second language acquisition
  • Cognitive or usage-based approaches to sign language diversity and typology
  • Cognitive discourse analysis
  • Cognitive approaches to the emergence of sign languages in a historical context
  • Language evolution
  • Language and space
  • Language and perception
  • Gesture and multimodality
  • Iconicity
  • Embodied cognition and situated cognition
  • Metaphor and metonymy and other forms of figurative language
