This is the website for the ‘Signs Beyond Borders: Meaning-making across sign and spoken languages’ Sadler Seminar Series 2017-18. The series is led by Dr Elisabetta Adami in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies with Professor Ruth Swanwick and Dr James Simpson in the School of Education. The research assistant for the series is Samantha Goodchild.

The series brings together researchers from across disciplines to investigate innovative multimodal approaches to interactions in daily life, including in shops, in schools and in the home. It focuses on how deaf and hearing interactants draw from semiotic resources and strategies to making meaning across, through and beyond cultural and linguistic barriers.
