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, the journal retains Samuel Guttenplan, a Fellow of the College, and Sarah Patterson, a Senior Lecturer in the Department, on its 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 workshops/conferences on pragmatics, narrative, conditionals, pretence, metaphor, names, and objects. 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.

Recent workshop and events have been on Syntax (Jan 2012), and 'The Cognitive Basis of Religion' (March 2014).
