Nijmegen lectures 2014
No Magic: Evolution of language, culture and cognition
Nijmegen, the Netherlands
In the Nijmegen lectures series, a leading scientist in the fields of psychology or linguistics presents a three-day series of lectures and seminars. The purpose of the series is to allow broad and intensive coverage of research topics by providing extensive interaction among the invited speaker and the participants. The series is a collaborative activity of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the Radboud University Nijmegen.
This year the lectures run from 27-29 of January. Professor Russell Gray (University of Auckland, New Zealand) will present his work on the evolution of language, culture and cognition.
The Nijmegen Lectures will include a poster session on topics related to this year's theme: Evolution of language, culture and cognition.
