2nd International School on Psycholinguistics, Neurolinguistics and Clinical Linguistics
"The School is directed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in learning about the neurocognitive foundations of language, about how to make their research ideas into concrete steps towards experimental designs, how to approach data collection and how to analyse data using experimental and statistical methods."
To be considered for attendance, send an expression of interest to the email address provided before July 31 2021, setting out your reasons and motivation for wishing to attend. In case there are more expressions of interest than can be accommodated, priority will be given to graduate students with a demonstrated interest in the neurocognitive foundations of language.
Will offer presentations, workshops and social activities that seriously engage with the colonial and settlement histories of diverse World Englishes with a view to questioning and reshaping how they can best be modelled by the next generation of researchers.
Encourage participants to rethink global Englishes from decolonising and raciolinguistic perspectives. We will draw important distinctions between Settler Englishes of the type found in New Zealand and other dialects which have instead evolved in colonial contexts. In the postcolonial Englishes of newly independent nations such as India, it is the indigenous languages which are regularly not given the credit they deserve for playing a key role in differentiating these varieties from Settler Englishes both structurally and socially.
