TLANG will be holding its final two day international conference in Birmingham, UK, in March 2018. This international cross disciplinary conference is focused on the theme of communication in the city.

We will create conversations which transcend disciplinary boundaries, and assist in thinking creatively about communication in metropolitan settings. We aim to promote discussion of research findings and methodologies between a range of stakeholders including academics, professionals, policy-makers, and practitioners.  

The conference fee is £150. British Sign Language and International Sign interpretation will be organised for all main sessions and at least one of the parallel sessions. The names of the interpreters will be announced shortly.
