SignWriting List
November 3, 2010

Hello Ingvild!

THANK YOU for this listing. I do appreciate it so much. I found the bibliographical work overwhelming and tried to finish other work that is pressing...

For example, I have been invited to present a paper in Tunisia on November 10th, chaired by the First Lady of Tunisia, and they will be setting it up so I can present in person on Skype to the conference. So even though I cannot travel to Tunisia, I am presenting a paper on SignWriting there nonetheless!  But I was just invited, so I only have a few days to write the presentation....it is a last minute invitation.... And I am honored to present there - 

Regarding this very nice listing, what about your dissertation, Ingvild? Certainly your dissertation used SignWriting too!

Thanks once again for helping with this...I hope this helps Jessie - Val ;-)

We have been assigned a research project, and need to find academic and professional articles that have been published about our topic, in this case Valerie Sutton and SignWriting. I am having trouble because the only sources I can find are Wikipedia and signwriting.org. I need to find books or articles that have been published. I have read almost everything on signwriting.org, but I cannot use this as a source for my project.
