Mind and Language
Mind & Language, an internationally recognised journal, was founded in 1985 by members of the Philosophy and Psychology Departments at Birkbeck, and the Linguistics Department of UCL.
Supporting interdisciplinary work on mind and language in philosophy, psychology and linguistics, it is currently edited by Samuel Guttenplan, Professor in the Philosophy Department, and Sarah Patterson, a Senior Lecturer in the Department, serves on the editorial board. Aside from its publications, Mind & Language also mounts conferences and workshops at Birkbeck and at the Institute for Philosophy.
In the past few years, we have organised workshop/conferences on pragmatics, narrative, conditionals, pretence, metaphor, names, and objects.
Our most recent workshop in October 2011 was on Neuroscience, Psychology and Philosophy, and we have scheduled one on Syntax for January 2012. Some of these events are by invitation, some are open to the public, and the purpose of all of them is to encourage interdisciplinary work and to involve research students in this work.
