Winter School 2016: Language in the "Lab"

We are proud to present our third annual Winter School! This year it will be all about experimental methods. A wide range of fields, from psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology to sociolinguistics, will be represented and discussed by six different lecturers. The Winter School is open for fellows who are pursuing a PhD in linguistics. There is no course fee, but participants will have to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.
