Meeting Description:

Workshop on Language and Aging
Held at the LSA Linguistic Institute 2013
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Friday, June 28, 2013

Scholars taking different linguistic approaches to study language and aging rarely get to talk with each other. In this one-day workshop, we bring together scholars conducting studies of social interaction in healthy and in individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease as well as those conducting studies of language-task abilities that change with aging (and its concomitant health issues) and/or Alzheimer’s Disease.
