Viorica Marian: bilingualism/multilingualism

Northwestern University

Friday, October 26, 2018
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Viorica Marian’s research focuses on bilingualism/multilingualism and the brain’s ability to accommodate multiple languages at the same time. She studies the relationship between language and memory, as well as how people process spoken and written language. Her research uses cognitive, behavioral, and neurological measures to study the human linguistic capacity.

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
