First meeting of the SignMorph Advisory Board
The first meeting of the SignMorph Advisory Board took place in March, 2021, to begin planning the beginning of the project in September 2021. We were joined by Advisory Board members: Robert Adam, Lina Hou, Annelies Kusters, Simon Kirby, Ryan Lepic, and Kaius Sinnemäki, as well as by Hannah Lutzenberger and Erin Moriarty Harrelson. Adam Schembri gave a presentation of the project plans, followed by some discussion about the project and the role of the SignMorph Advisory Board. We discussed ideas about 'decolonisation' of the research project, and plans for a future workshop, potentially called 'Sign Ecologies: Diverse Signing Communities and Signed Languages'. We hope to meet with the Advisory Board members again in 2022.
