Adam Kendon (b. London 1934) was educated at Cambridge University (biology and experimental psychology), and at Oxford University (D. Phil., 1963. Thesis topic: communication conduct in face-to-face interaction). Kendon's interests include the study of communication conduct in face-to-face interaction and the study of gesture and sign languages and how these relate to spoken language. He has received research funds from the National Science Foundation, Washington, D. C.

Kendon has held research posts at Oxford University, University of Pittsburgh, Bronx State Hospital, New York, The Australian National University, the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander Studies, Indiana University and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen. He has held teaching appointments at the University of Oxford, Cornell University, Connecticut College, the University of Pennsylvania, Istituto Universitario Orientale, Naples, the University of Salerno and the University of Calabria. He is co-editor (with Cornelia Mueller) of the journal GESTURE, published since 2001 by John Benjamins of Amsterdam.
