New Book Series from John Benjamins Publishing

Gesture Studies
Adam Kendon, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
Cornelia Müller, European University Viadrina, Frankfurt/Oder

ISSN: 1874-6829

John Benjamins Publishing Company is launching a new book series to
accompany its journal Gesture.
Gesture Studies aims to publish book-length publications on all aspects of
gesture. Topics may include, but are by not limited to: the relationship
between gesture and speech; the role gesture may play in communication in
all the circumstances of social interaction, including conversations, the
work-place or instructional settings; gesture and cognition; the
development of gesture in children; the place of gesture in first and
second language acquisition; the processes by which spontaneously created
gestures may become transformed into codified forms; the documentation and
discussion of vocabularies of 'quotable' or 'emblematic' gestures; the
relationship between gesture and sign; studies of gesture systems or sign
languages such as those that have developed in factories, religious
communities or in tribal societies; the role of gesture in ritual
interactions of all kinds, such as greetings, religious, civic or legal
rituals; gestures compared cross-culturally; gestures in primate social
interaction; biological studies of gesture, including discussions of the
place of gesture in language origins theory; gesture in multi-modal
human-machine interaction; historical studies of gesture; and studies in
the history of gesture studies, including discussions of gesture in the
theatre or as a part of rhetoric.
Volumes in this peer-reviewed series may be collected volumes, monographs,
or reference books, in the English language.
