Two July sessions for our iSLanDS Seminar Series

21 June, 2017

We are pleased to invite you to two summer sessions in our iSLanDS 2017 Seminar Series.

The first is our Special Session on Chinese Sign Language, which takes place on Wednesday 12 July at 4–5.30pm in Livesey House LH227 here at UCLan. For this session we are delighted to have two talks, one by Dr Xiaochi Zhao from Nanjing Normal University of Special Education entitled ‘On the Construction and Application of Chinese Sign Language Vocabulary Corpus’, and the other by Dr Hongyu Liu, entitled ‘Clitic or lexical word? Another look at the nature of one crucial completive aspectual marker in Chinese Sign Language’. English-BSL interpreting will be provided for this event.

The second seminar is our Round Table Discussion on Sign Language Syntax, which will be held on Monday 17 July at 3-4pm in Harrington Building HA337. We are hosting this seminar as part of a special visit by Dr Gabrielle Hodge from University College London’s Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre. The round table will concentrate mostly on the syntax of British Sign Language (BSL) and Australian Sign Language (Auslan). This discussion will take place in BSL.

We look forward to welcoming you to these events, which are open to everyone, and we would like to thank all of the participants and presenters who have contributed to our well-attended 2017 seminars.
