Sign Language in Göttingen

Signing science for everyone


Sharing our knowledge and making it available for society lies at the heart of our work. Therefore, an integral part of our work as researchers is the transfer of knowledge and an open discussion of our results. We frequently present the results of our studies at Deaf community centers and public meetings where we usually sign our presentations. We moreover publish the results of our studies in journals like ‚DAS ZEICHEN' which is a German journal focusing on sign language and Deaf culture. As many of our informants and participants of various studies volunteer for the linguistic studies, it is our desire to share our results with the Deaf community. In the long run, we also plan to develop a range of teaching materials in cooperation with German Sign Language teachers.
