Section: 001

Subject: Psychology (PSYCH)

With permission of instructor.
Advisory Prerequisites:

Primary Instructor:

This course will be a graduate level exploration of major research topics in human language processing, mixing classic results in the field and discussion of current major theoretical debates and state-of-the-art empirical results and methods. We will focus primarily on word and sentence levels, with an emphasis on how we derive meaning from spoken and written language.

Course Requirements:

There is no textbook; assigned journal articles will be available on Canvas. Students will complete two class presentations, a term paper, and contribute to class discussions. This year, with the support of a UMS grant, we will use two UMS theatrical productions to guide some of our discussions: Underground Railroad game (1/17/18 - 1/21/18) and Book of Travelers (2/2/2018). Attendance at these performances is required and the cost will be subsidized. Portions of two class sessions may be held at special times (on Thursday or Friday) in order to accommodate visits from the artists.

Class Format:

The course is interdisciplinary, but accessible to graduate students with a range of backgrounds in psychology, linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, and computer science.
