Sign language communities

Sign Language researchers contribute towards the documentation of the cultural and linguistic heritage of elderly deaf people. Relevant goals of their research are also education and integration.

  • In the context of the Horizon2020 project SIGN-HUB  Roland Pfau collaborates with De Gelderhorst a center for elderly deaf people in Ede. The societally relevant goal of the project is the documentation of the cultural and linguistic heritage of this population by means of semi-structured interviews.
  • Members of the research group maintain a Facebook page on which information related to sign language is posted.
