On Multilingualism: Thinking and Feeling in One’s Second Language

An interdisciplinary conversation on multilingualism between two researchers from different disciplines. From their respective scholarly perspectives, linguist Inger Lindberg and psychologist Alexandra Dylman discuss multilingualism’s relationship to cognition, education and emotional life. Who does one become when one has to live one’s life in a second language? How does multilingualism affect one’s emotional life and decision-making? How are different languages situated in the brain?

Listen to the conversation here.

Inger Lindberg, Professor Emerita of Bilingualism with special focus on second language learning in the Department of Language Education
Alexandra Dylman, Associate Professor in the Department of Special Education and psychologist.

The conversation is moderated by Therese Kellner, curator at Accelerator.

Onsdag 5 februari kl 18:00–19:00

Admission free, no booking required.

The talk will be held in Swedish in Accelerator’s foyer. The café will be open during the event.
