Meeting Description:

''Linguistics Flash - Mobs'' is a series of video conferences thought to be a way to keep the linguistic community connected during this troublesome period. In each conference, two scholars will face long-standing theoretical issues making use of different frameworks: fun is guaranteed with these ''sword fights”!

Program Information:

On December 17 2020, at 6:30 PM (UTC+1), Charles Yang from University of Pennsylvania and Ken Wexler from MIT will debate the topic of ''Nature and Nurture”. Moderator will be Maria Teresa Guasti from Università Milano Bicocca.
