The Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies (CBS), of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is pleased to announce that the 2019 PolyU CBS Summer School will be held in Hong Kong, from Monday, July 15th to Friday, August 9th 2019.
Credit-bearing courses will be offered under two themes: (1) Language and Culture (undergraduate), and (2) Language, Cognition and Neuroscience (postgraduate). These courses will offer you a window into language, brain and culture by considering such questions as: How does language work? How is language instantiated in the brain? How does language reflect our cultural and social identity? How does language shape us as humans? By considering and addressing these questions in our summer school, you will have a clearer understanding of what language is really like.
The summer school program will include invited speakers, workshops and fieldtrips. The courses and talks will be in English.
