Meeting Description:

The 32nd Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing will be hosted by The University of Colorado, Boulder at the Hilton Embassy Suites Hotel in Boulder, March 29-31, 2019. The conference focuses on the comprehension, production, and acquisition of language at the sentence level, traditionally drawing researchers from psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, education, and philosophy.

The special session of the 2019 conference is ''Variation in the Mechanisms of Human Language Processing''. The special session will address fundamental questions about how human language and language processing are shaped by variations in the cognitive capacities of humans. The session will encompass issues related to the impact of developmental language impairments, differences in perceptual experiences (blindness and deafness), cognitive changes associated with aging, and individual differences in cognitive abilities within the typically developing population. The special session aims to produce theoretical and methodological cross-pollination between research focused on variation in language processing and a more standard paradigm within psycholinguistic research that has focused on the average language processing abilities of neurocognitively typical, young adults.

Six prominent invited speakers will represent research on different forms of variation in the mechanisms of language processing:

Marina Bedny, Johns Hopkins University

Karen Emmorey, San Diego State University

Barbara Landau, Johns Hopkins University

Laurence Leonard, Purdue University

Bob McMurray, University of Iowa

Elizabeth Stine-Morrow, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

CUNY 2019 is organized by Al Kim, Eliana Colunga, Laura Michaelis, and Bhuvana Narasimhan.
