The Future of Linguistics
The directors of the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen have identified the field of linguistics as the core area for the new department. Linguistics should in this case be construed broadly and include, for example, linguistic typology, theoretical linguistics, linguistic anthropology, computational linguistics, multimodal communication, language evolution. The aim of these webinars is to discuss in more detail what the promising developments are in the field of linguistics that should guide our search procedure.
