Meeting Description:

In the last forty years, sign languages, used by deaf communities around the world, have been the object of an intensive analysis. All researchers agree nowadays that sign languages are natural languages, with a similar degree of complexity of oral languages.

The Centre of Linguistics of the University of Porto (CLUP), together with the Escola Superior de Educação do Porto (IPP), will organize a Meeting on Morpho-syntax of Portuguese Sign Language (LGP) and other Sign Languages on November, the 26th and the 27th November.

Our invited speakers will be Prof. Carlo Cecchetto (Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca), Prof. Roland Pfau (Amsterdam University), Prof. Ana Mineiro (UCP) and Prof. João Costa (UNL).

We will organize a roundtable on Teaching and Research on LGP in Portugal, with the presence of Ana Mineiro – UCP, Isabel Correia (ESE Coimbra), Miguel Santos – ESE/IPP, Orquídea Coelho – FPCEUP, moderated by Celda Choupina (ESE).

There will be two periods for free talks of 20m, followed by 10m of debate: the anonymous abstracts (sent in a email message with identification) should have a maximum of two pages A4 including examples and references, with annexes that may contain videos, and must be sent to ambarrosbritogmail.com or celdaese.ipp.pt until 5 July. The abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee, constituted by Carlo Cecchetto, Roland Pfau, Ana Mineiro, Ronice Muller de Quadros, João Costa, Adriana Baptista.

The languages of the meeting will be English and Portuguese and it is our intention to have a translator from English and Portuguese to LGP.
