Language in interaction proudly presents

Held on September 07, 2018 at Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.


On July 01, 2018, the second phase of our Gravitation consortium officially started. High time to present the ongoing research initiated in our first phase! On September 07, 2018, Language in Interaction organises a one day event called “Proudly Presents”.14 PhDs will present their work and their most important findings. Presentations will cover the full spectrum of language research covering topics such as genetics, neuroscience, modelling, and (psyhco)linguistics.
