The Multilingual Mind: Lecture series on multilingualism across disciplines


The lecture series ‘The Multilingual Mind’ started in April and ran until June 2021. The lectures took place every Tuesday from 17.00 until 18.30 (CEST/UTC+02). It was hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Jagiellonian University, University of Konstanz, University Milano-Bicocca, and University of Reading. As in the previous semesters, the speakers presented research findings on multilingualism across different disciplines, in line with the MultiMind project (linguistics, education, psychology, neuroscience, speech & language pathology). The lecture series was aimed at everyone interested in Multilingualism.
