The Marshall M. Weinberg Symposium is an annual interdisciplinary event that focuses on cognitive science and includes a philosophical commentary. The topic of the 2012 Symposium is Bilingualism. The purpose of this Symposium is to explore the implications of bilingual research for theories of human cognition. The first five speakers are specialists in bilingualism who will address the topic from a variety of perspectives: spoken-/signed-language bilingualism, code-switching and language mixing, cognitive development and bilingualism, preverbal infants and bilingualism, and first- vs. second-language bilingual acquisition in children. The sixth speaker is a philosopher who will pull together the strands of the five bilingualism talks by considering philosophical implications of the phenomenon of bilingualism.
This event is sponsored by the Department of Linguistics, with funding from an endowment for Philosophy and Cognitive Science. It is free and open to any who want to attend.
