Cambridge Language Sciences is hosting a major conference, Language Sciences in the 21st century: The interdisciplinary challenge, at West Road on 3-4 October 2013. The aim is to bring together an international group of researchers, whose work crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, in order to explore key issues in language sciences. 

The four thematic strands will be:

  • Philosophy of language meets computational linguistics
  • Diversity and universals
  • Beyond our primate inheritance: Neurobiological and evolutionary approaches to language
  • Interdisciplinary perspectives on multilingualism

Invited speakers:

Professor Nicholas Asher (CNRS Toulouse, University of Texas at Austin)

Professor Spike Gildea (Dept. of Linguistics, University of Oregon)

Professor Asif Ghazanfar (Dept. of Psychology, Princeton University)

Professor Judith Kroll (Center for Language Science, Pennsylvania State University)
