It is our pleasure to announce the first summer school of the International Society for Gesture Studies (ISGS), entitled 'Handling Gesture: Theory and Method in Gesture Research'.
The summer school will take place 19th-24th July, 2010, in Frankfurt Oder (Germany), directly preceding the 4th ISGS conference (taking place 25th-30th July).
Its aim is to provide students and researchers new to the field of gesture studies with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in theoretical and methodological aspects of gesture research from a range of different perspectives. This experience will be provided through lectures and practical workshops delivered over the six days by leading scholars in the field of gesture studies (see website for more detail).

The summer school is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation Germany and includes funding for 30 participants. The stipends cover participation in the school, travel, accommodation and food/drinks for the entire duration of the school.
The deadline for applications is March 25th 2010.
The submissions will be evaluated by the ISGS executive board acting as Summer School scientific committee, and all selected trainees will be fully funded.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
