Linguistics Open House

Celebrating Language Learning and Research

  • G17 (Robert Henderson Language Media Center) Cathedral of Learning
  • October 16 (Mon) 3-5pm
  • Welcome by Shelome Gooden (chair) at 3:30pm

The Department of Linguistics has been engaged in promoting language learning and language research since 1964. Join us now to celebrate the grand re-opening of our newly refurbished Robert Henderson Language Media Center and the Department of Linguistics Research Lab. The LMC’s PC and MAC labs support the more than 36 languages taught at Pitt—come and explore our technology and learn more about how the labs can help your students learn languages. Meet student researchers in the Linguistics Department who are conducting research on language variation, language learning, and bilingualism, and see presentations on how they are using eye tracking and other experimental methods to study language comprehension and production.

Part of International Education Week at Pitt. Light refreshments served.
