The first meeting of the ‘Formal and Experimental Advances in Sign Language Theory’ (FEAST) colloquium will take place at the University of Venice on June 20-22, 2011. FEAST aims at becoming a regular forum to discuss formal approaches to sign language grammar (in particular in the generative tradition), experimental approaches to sign languages, and their interaction. Tentatively, the 2012 ‘FEAST’ should be organized by the University of Göttingen.
The keynote speakers of Venice FEAST will be:
Karen Emmorey (San Diego State University)
Gaurav Mathur (Gallaudet University)
Markus Steinbach (University of Göttingen)
The official languages of the conference will be English and ASL. ASL/English interpreting will be provided.
