Meeting Description:

The goal of this workshop will be to introduce researchers to interdisciplinary perspectives on code-switching and to allow those at the cutting-edge to present their findings. In addition to state-of-the-art talks by specialists working in linguistics (Margaret Deuchar), psychology (David Green) and neuroscience (Guillaume Thierry), abstracts are invited from researchers working on code-switching from one of these three perspectives.

Main speakers:
Margaret Deuchar (University of Cambridge)
David Green (University College London)
Guillaume Thierry (Bangor University)

Conference organisers:
Magdalen Connolly
Margaret Deuchar
Draško Kašćelan
Isabelle Lorge
Esther-Miriam Wagner

2nd Call for Papers:

Research on code-switching was the province of specialists in linguistics alone in the latter part of the twentieth century, and is still a valuable source of insights into the human language faculty. However, it has relatively recently attracted the attention of researchers in psycholinguistics and neuroscience because of its promise to throw light not only on how the brain manages two or more potentially competing languages, but also on how the brain itself may adapt to the demands of this process.

Abstract s­ubmission:
