New journal GESTURE

It is with great pleasure that we announce the first issue of the new
journal GESTURE. GESTURE is edited by Adam Kendon

The journal GESTURE is being launched to facilitate the integration of
the emerging field of 'gesture' studies. GESTURE publishes
reports of original empirical research, historical investigations and
theoretical reviews on any aspect of gesture and from any
perspective. GESTURE also publishes reviews and news of recent
books, conference reports, and information about forthcoming events.
All papers are peer reviewed.

GESTURE also appears in an electronic version, available from
the World Wide Web. This makes it possible to access supplementary
visual material, such as movie files and colour fotographs or
