Abstract: Research on sign languages in the world have increased significantly after the 1960s, when for the first time, these were described as natural languages and, therefore, recognized in Linguistics at the same status that oral languages. It is clear, however, that with increasing frequency, there are studies investigating the Sign Language beyond Saussure’s proposal and describe and analyze them in use situations in different contexts. This new paradigm in Sign Language studies has shifted and extrapolated the limits of Linguistics and has provided, from the point of view of the complexity of this object, dialogue with other fields of Human and Social Sciences like Semiotics, Education, Anthropology, Translation and Interpretation Studies, among others. In order to promote an interdisciplinary dialogue on these languages, this symposium aims to bring together researchers that have investigating the sign language in different situations of use as interactions between the deaf community, languages in contact, bilingual education, teaching, translation, interpretation, transcription of corpora, gestures, etc.
