Meeting Description: On November 7, the workshop ‘Rural signing varieties: social dynamics and linguistic structure’ will take place at Leiden University. Co-organised by Leiden University and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, this event presents results from the EuroBabel project on ‘Endangered Sign Languages in Village Communities’, as well as related work from collaborators.

In addition there will be an opportunity to present work in poster format. The poster session will be concluded with a Best Poster Prize. We welcome poster presentations focused on emerging sign languages, minority sign language (of developing countries), as well as the relationship between social dynamics and linguistic structure more generally. Please contact Connie de Vos (Connie.deVos@mpi.nl) if you would like to present your research in this session.
