Originally founded as “University for Humanity” in 1970 the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt is quite a young member of the Austrian academic structure located in the beautiful province of Carinthia in the southern part of Austria.
The Centre for Sign Language and Deaf Communication (ZGH) was originally founded in 1988 as Research Centre for Sign Language and for several years now we are part of the Faculty of Humanity. The focus of our research activities lies on the very interesting phenomenon of comparing sign language to spoken languages as well as producing learning materials for the deaf.
We hope from our practice-related work to create major improvements of the still difficult situation for the deaf and hard-of-hearing in their education in Austria.
By participating actively in numerous national and international (mainly EU) projects during the last 20 years we have built a good network all over Europe.
