John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce, as of volume 18, the appointment of Kris Heylen (KU Leuven) as a new co-editor serving with Ninke Stukker (University of Groningen) of the book series Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research. Outgoing co-editor Wilbert Spooren (RU Nijmegen) will remain a member of the board.

Over the past decades, linguists have taken a broader view of language and are borrowing methods and findings from other disciplines such as cognition and computer sciences, neurology, biology, sociology, psychology, and anthropology. This development has enriched our knowledge of language and communication, but at the same time it has made it difficult for researchers in a particular field of language studies to be aware of how their findings might relate to those in other (sub-)disciplines.

Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research seeks to address this problem by taking a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of language and communication. The books in the series focus on a specific linguistic topic and offer studies pertaining to this topic from different disciplinary angles, thus taking converging evidence in language and communication research as its basic methodology.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; General Linguistics
