Multilingualism

The Weinberg Symposium is an annual interdisciplinary event that focuses on cognitive science and includes a philosophical angle.  The topic of the 2012 Symposium is bilingualism, and the speakers are a philosopher, Gilbert Harman, and five specialists in various aspects of bilingualism.  The five bilingualism experts cover different aspects of the field: code-switching (Auer), signed languages and the brain and bimodal bilingualism (Emmorey), neurocognitive limits of the child’s innate language-learning ability (Genesee), bilingual first-language acquisition and early-childhood second-language acquisition (Meisel), and bilingual learning, perception, and processing (Sebastian-Galles).   The philosopher is Gilbert Harman (Princeton University), whose research interests include a well-developed interest in philosophy of cognition and of linguistics.
