|Contining an interdisciplinary discussion of language begun two years ago, a new series of evening seminars this year will explore the rich variety of approaches available for the study of language that are represented by faculty in the tri-college community, and the relations among them.
Language is a topic that is particularly amenable to interdisciplinary exploration, as evidenced by the range of disciplines (such as literary studies, languages, linguistics, psychology, education, computer science and cognitive science) related to it. The aim of this series of talks is to foster cross-disciplinary discussion among faculty and students from all the Tri-co schools.
The series of talks will rotate among the three schools with each speaker coming from a non-host institution, so as to introduce faculty and students to work that is being conducted on language at the other colleges. Talks will be presented in a manner that is accessible to all faculty members and interested students in hopes of fostering more collaboration and discussion about the nature of language.
The series (see schedule) is organized by Eric Raimy.
