International Institute for Sign Languages and Deaf Studies (iSLanDS)

The International Institute for Sign Languages and Deaf Studies (iSLanDS) is a unique hub for the study of sign languages and deaf studies. We combine cutting-edge research with outputs and project activities that contribute to the empowerment of deaf communities. We have been part of UCLan since 2006.

Our mission is:

  • To engage in cutting-edge research and high-quality teaching in the areas of sign languages and deaf studies as an international Centre of Excellence
  • To contribute to the empowerment of deaf communities around the world through a wide range of educational and research activities.

We keep a blog with news stories and announcements, and we are on Facebook and Twitter.
