Nijmegen Lectures 2017 by Gary Dell
In “Speaking: From Intention to Articulation”, Levelt wrote that “Production is the stepchild of psycholinguistics.” Nearly 30 years later, this is no longer true. Production research is now both extensive and well integrated into the psycholinguistic family. This integration is aided by the fact that we are beginning to understand how production sits within the cognitive system, how it interacts with our abilities to perceive, attend, learn, and remember. In this spirit, the 2017 Nijmegen lecture discusses aspects of Dell’s work on production that are specifically inspired by the psychology of learning and memory.
The lectures take place from the 23th to the 25th of January, 2017. All lectures and discussion sessions are free of charge and open to the public. To register and for more information, visit: http://www.mpi.nl/events/nijmegen-lectures-2017/registration
