PROGRAMME

Speakers

Margaret Deuchar (University of Cambridge)

David Green (University College London)

Guillaume Thierry (Bangor University

Research on code-switching was the province of specialists in linguistics alone in the latter part of the twentieth century, and is still a valuable source of insights into the human language faculty.  However, it has relatively recently attracted the attention of researchers in psycholinguistics and neuroscience because of its promise to throw light not only on how the brain manages two or more potentially competing languages, but also on how the brain itself may adapt to the demands of this process.

The goal of this workshop will be to introduce researchers to this rapidly developing field and to allow those at the cutting edge to present their findings.  In addition to state-of-the-art talks by specialists working in linguistics, psychology and neuroscience, abstracts are invited from researchers working on code-switching from one of these three perspectives.

Organisers

Magdalen Connolly, Margaret Deuchar, Aretousa Giannakou, Draško Kašćelan, Isabelle Lorge, Mojgan Sarabi, Esther-Miriam Wagner

Website re-development 

This website will no longer be updated after 31 July 2017 while a new version of the site is in development. This is to reflect the transition of Cambridge Language Sciences to the status of Interdisciplinary Research Centre.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY CHANGES TO THE RESEARCH DIRECTORY AFTER THE SITE IS FROZEN WILL NOT MIGRATE TO THE NEW SITE. 

Site members will be notified via the mailing list when the new website is live.
