We will have the first meeting of the Journal Club for this academic year today. As has been the practice in the past, we will all read a (short!) article about language that addresses topics of general interest to linguistics (i.e. not too technical). At the meeting, we then have a conversation about the issues raised in the paper. Journal Club is an informal discussion with no-one officially leading the discussion. All is welcome to attend.
There will also be snacks and coffee available.
Our first reading for the year is available at this link. It is a short (12 page) paper about what the manual modality reveals about language and cognition more generally.
Goldin-Meadow, Susan. (2014) Widening the lens: what the manual modality reveals about language, learning and cognition. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
Bring along ideas for what we may read at our next meeting. Hope to see many of you there!
