We organise an annual ELL Research Day with talks by ELL staff, postgraduate students, guests and visitors from the university and other institutions. The event is usually live-tweeted by Laura Bailey.
The Language & Cognition reading group meets biweekly to discuss empirical or methodological papers in linguistics, psycholinguistics and cognitive science. This year (2015-2016) the theme is Information Theoretic models of language (list of readings available here). Get in touch with Christina Kim if you would like to join the group.
