ISGS Hubs

To empower gesture researchers to build local communities and to strengthen ISGS by spreading gesture research AROUND THE GLOBE, we have begun to support “ISGS hubs” in different regions. Look out for events, workshops and conferences and get into contact with the Hub members close to you.

ISGS Hub Hong-Kong

The ISGS – Hong Kong was established in 2019 to recognise the growing footprint of gesture research in this part of the world. The goal of our ISGS Hub is to bring together academics interested in gesture studies both in HK and from the wider region to build specialised knowledge and collaborations.

The ISGS-HK was founded by Wing Chee SoWai-lan Gladys TangRenia Lopez-Ozieblo and Simon  Harrison. 

For more information, announcements, and publications see the website of the hub.

You can also follow ISGS-HK on Twitter  @GestureHK and Instagram @gesturesocietyHK.


ISGS Hub France

 

ISGS France was created in January 2020 and brings together French and/or French-speaking scholars, who are interested in Gesture Studies in many different research fields — linguistics, didactics, psychology, sociology, ethnology, computer science — and whose research area varies from interactional linguistics, pathology, didactics, first and second language learning, to human-machine communication. Bringing together the diversity of our interests is the best way to promote our research and share our knowledge and expertise with the younger generation as well as the wider scientific community of the ISGS (International Society for Gesture Studies).

For more information, announcements, and publications see the website of the hub.
