Our group has been joined by two new members, Sara Silvente i Pons, funded by a UBICS collaboration grant, and Marcel Ruland. Both of them are MA students from the CCiL master’s programme of the UB, and they will be collaborating with the group and writing their MA theses under Cedric’s supervision. Welcome, Sara and Marcel! We are very happy to have you!
We are proud to announce that Constantina Theofanopoulou will be defending her PhD thesis about the implications of oxytocin in speech on Thursday, the 21st of March, at 15:00 in this location on the UB campus. Her work was supervised by Cedric and co-supervised by Erich Jarvis. If you are curious to know more, read the abstract below or join us for the defense!

The venue for days 2 (Sep 27) and 3 (Sep 28) of Protolang 5 (as well as for the Workshop on Lenneberg, Sep 29) will be Can Jaumandreu – UB Parc de les Humanitats i les Ciències Socials. Metro line L1 (red) is the best way to get there (short walk from the Glòries stop).
In order to give people enough time to adapt to this last minute change, we will start at 9:30, instead of 9:00.
Please spread the word!
Yesterday afternoon we were contacted by officials at the University of Barcelona to inform us that the venue we had reserved for next week’s conference and workshop won’t be usable. As you may have seen in the news, the political situation in Catalunya has led to pacific protests. Yesterday the Historic Building of the university, due to its centrality and iconic status, was taken over by students and protesters. Since this is where we planned to meet, university officials contacted us to relocate, as protests may disrupt our meeting. Accordingly, we will meet in the building adjacent to the venue we had originally chosen. The Workshop on Lenneberg on September 29 will also take place at the new location.

While the rooms will be less grandiose, we think that the meeting will be minimally affected by this change. We look forward to seeing you all.
