How languages shape our thinking, memory and judgment: a linguistic journey into the mind

From Tuesday 27th February 2018 18:30 to 19:30

Can language differences cause different judgments of innocence or guilt in a legal context? Can speakers of a certain language have better memory for some events than speakers of another language? And what about bilinguals: do they always think and remember in both languages?

In this lecture, Prof Filipovic will shed light on the intricate links between language and cognition that are crucial to our understanding of how the mind works, and which have some surprising real-world consequences.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this free public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a drinks reception after the talk.
