The 2016 Einar Haugen Lecture will be given by a renowned researcher in the field of bilingualism, François Grosjean. Among his many pioneering contributions is his view that bilinguals are not two monolinguals in one person but rather human communicators in their own right. In this lecture, he will discuss the bilingualism of adults and children, the importance of understanding biculturalism, and family strategies and support in the upbringing of bilingual children.

Though American born, Einar Haugen was as well one of the most European of linguists; where others saw trans-Atlantic conceptual conflict, he professed comparability. While he rose to eminence within a structuralist episteme, his most imaginative contributions can now be appreciated through the lens of sociolinguistic process.

The 2015 Einar Haugen Lecture will be given by Michael Silverstein, and is open to everyone.
