Bilingualism Matters Research Symposium 2018

Bilingualism Matters Research Symposium 2018

 

September 7, 2018
to be advised, Edinburgh

Our 2018 inaugural research symposium aims to provide an opportunity for researchers in Edinburgh and from across our Bilingualism Matters international network to come together to share and exchange ideas on any aspect of bilingualism, with a focus on dissemination potential beyond the academic world.  

Presentations are for an academic, interdisciplinary audience, avoiding specialist jargon on any aspect of bilingualism, including, but not limited to:

  • typical and atypical child bilingualism 
  • adult language learning and lifetime bilingualism 
  • cognitive effects of bilingualism and other types of experience 
  • bilingualism and bidialectalism 
  • bilingualism and social cognition 
  • bilingual education 
  • the neurolinguistics of bilingualism 
  • bilingualism in policy making 
  • sociological and social aspects of bilingualism

Our panel of reviewers choose abstracts for 15-minute talks and posters, based on the following criteria: 

  1. Rigour of research
  2. Originality of research 
  3. Potential for dissemination through Bilingualism Matters network
