Meeting Description: 

This interdisciplinary 2-day symposium aims at bringing together linguists
interested in investigating causes of language change and experts in areas
outside linguistics that are often seen as containing triggers for language
change. The concrete goal is to outline a research programme and investigative
approaches that systematically investigate causes of language change using
interdisciplinary approaches combining linguistic with extra-linguistic

Day 1 features specialists in speech production, psycholinguistics,
neuroscience, psychology and economics as well as historical linguistics
giving overviews of their relevant fields. On day 2 interested researchers
join together in workshops to develop concrete approaches. We call for
registrations by interested researchers for one or both days to join this
symposium via email to the organisers by 31 October 2016 (at
r.hendery at westernsydney.edu.au). For day 1 a broader audience is welcome, but
for day 2 we ask to register only if you have a concrete interest in
researching causes of language change from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Invited Speakers:

Prof. Cathi Best (Western Sydney University), Child Language
Prof. Ina Bornkessel-Schlesewsky (University of South Australia), Neuroscience
Dr Tegan Cruwys (University of Queensland), Psychology
Prof. Anne Cutler (Western Sydney University), Psycholinguistics
Dr Astrid Hopfensitz (Toulouse School of Economics), Economics
Prof. Matthias Schlesewsky (University of South Australia), Neuroscience
