The Bloomsbury Round Table on Communication, Cognition & Culture is an annual, international event, jointly hosted by adjacent colleges of the University of London, led by Birkbeck College, where researchers at different stages of their career are invited to present the latest work in the broad fields of Language, Communication and Cognition. This year the event will be co-organised by the International Association of Multilingualism, the AILA Research network “Multilingualism: Acquisition and Use” and Birkbeck’s Centre for Multilingual & Multicultural Research. The Thematic Focus will be on 'The Multiple Faces of Multilingualism'. The Round Table will consist of 9 invited presentations and a limited number of paper presentations and posters.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
