COST SignGram Summer School 2015 Barcelona

The COST SignGram Summer School 2015 Barcelona addresses theoretical and experimental issues in sign language linguistics and research in the domains of the phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics of sign languages.

The summer school is open to master students, graduate students or junior researchers who already have familiarity with sign language research but are not trained in formal linguistics and to students at the same level who are trained in formal linguistics but are not yet familiar with sign language linguistics. In order for the two groups of students to work fruitfully together in the classroom, a list of preparatory readings will be provided before the summer school starts. 

The summer school will take place at the Poblenou Campus of Pompeu Fabra University on May 7-9, 2015.

Minimum Education Level: BA

The languages of the Summer School will be English and ASL/IS. Interpreting between ASL/IS and English will be provided.

The COST SignGram Summer School 2015 Barcelona is the training school of the COST Action IS1006 ‘Unraveling the grammars of European sign languages: pathways to full citizenship of deaf signers and to the protection of their linguistic heritage’. For information about this COST Action visit:

Notice that the COST SignGram Training School will take place after the fourth edition of the ‘Formal and Experimental Advances in Sign Language Theory’ (FEAST) conference, also at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona), on May 4-6, 2015.
