Subject: Editorial change JB journal Gesture

John Benjamins is pleased to announce, that as of Volume 17:2 (2018) Sotaro
Kita (University of Warwick) will succeed Adam Kendon as editor of our journal
Gesture. Adam Kendon will stay on as Honorary Editor. Their has also been a
complete board change (www.benjamins.com/catalog/gest).

Gesture publishes articles reporting original research, as well as survey and
review articles, on all aspects of gesture. The journal aims to stimulate and
facilitate scholarly communication between the different disciplines within
which work on gesture is conducted. For this reason papers written in the
spirit of cooperation between disciplines are especially encouraged.

Topics may include, but are by no means 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
multimodal 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.

Gesture provides a platform where contributions to this topic may be found
from such disciplines as linguistics, archaeology, anthropology, biology,
communication studies, neurology, ethology, theatre studies, literature and
the visual arts, cognitive psychology and computer engineering.
