Meeting Description:

Introduction to Biolinguistics
(Prof. Cedric Boeckx, ICREA/UAB)

In this two-part seminar I will examine the nature and roots of 'biolinguistics' (by which I mean the interdisciplinary attempt to uncover the biological nature of the human language faculty). I will also devote a fair amount of time to outlining current research opportunities and what I think needs to take place to forge head. By the end of the seminar I hope that students will be familiar with the central questions of the field, some of the major controversies surrounding it, and some sense of what the field may have to offer in the future. The talks will not exclusively be addressed to students of linguistics, and will be of interest to a broad range of disciplines, all of which can be characterized as the 'life sciences'. Technical expertise in linguistics is absolutely not required to be able to follow the lectures. Familiarity with the history of modern cognitive science would be a plus.

Venue: Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto (Porto, Portugal)
Attendance fees: 40 EUR (Students=20 EUR; Staff and students from the University of Porto: free of charge)
