To celebrate the 60th birthday of Siegmund Prillwitz, founder of the Institute for German Sign Language at Hamburg University, and to honor his thirty years of commitment to the field of sign language research, sixteen renowned researchers and research teams from all over the world have published Progress in Sign Language Research. The contributions cover topics about the history of sign language communities, linguistic analyses in sign language research, and insights from education and training. Reflecting the authors’ countries of origin, the papers relate to several European and non-European sign languages, and in many cases even compare languages.
