Storrs Campus
Oak Hall, North Wing

We are pleased to announce that the eighth annual University of Connecticut Language Fest will be held on Saturday, April 29, from 9AM--4PM in Oak Hall, North Wing, at the Storrs Campus, jointly funded by the Connecticut Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences, the Cognitive Science Program, and the Departments of Linguistics, Philosophy, Psychological Sciences, and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences.

Language Fest is a University-wide research conference that brings together the full community of language researchers at UConn, including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, for a day of sharing results, ideas, methodologies and fostering future interdisciplinary collaborations.

This year's Fest features talks from two speakers known for their research on language: Ellen Lau (University of Maryland) who studies the neurobiology of language using MEG and fMRI, and Casey Lew-Williams(Princeton University) who studies language development in mono- and bilingual infants. In addition to these talks, two poster sessions will showcase language-related research from the UConn community.
