Workshop: Multimodality and Language Learning
On June 14, the Nijmegen Gesture Center (NGC) will hold its third workshop: Multimodality and Language Learning. The workshop will bring together international leading researchers who work with hearing and deaf children learning sign languages on topics including the role of body, iconicity, visual context, action perception/understanding, joint attention and multimodal input on language learning.
The workshop is supported by a European Research Council (ERC) Grant, an NWO Internationalisation Grant, the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (MPI), and the Center for Language Studies (CLS) at the Radboud University Nijmegen. It is an initiative of the Nijmegen Gesture Center.
There will be a short discussion, led by a discussant, after every three sessions. The set-up of this workshop is deliberately small to guarantee interactive discussions of the different topics that are presented in the sessions.
