ISGS 2018 conference

The first conference on gesture on the African continent will focus on the rich diversity of human gestural communication.

Gestures and gestural behaviour are dynamic and changing –  varying not only across languages and cultures but also within cultural groups according to social levels, age, gender and situation. The main aim of this conference will be to examine the wide range of linguistic and cultural phenomena and other factors that influence and shape gestural diversity.
