The monthly Interaction Meetings provide an informal meeting ground for the community of Nijmegen researchers working at the intersection of language and social interaction. The interdisciplinary meetings feature researchers from all across campus, with participants from the Centre for Language Studies, Donders Institute, and Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics.
During the corona pandemic we meet online using Jitsi (subscribe to the mailing list or contact us for details). Our physical meeting location is E20.27, the sky lounge atop the Erasmus building with great views of Nijmegen.
We use the interaction meetings for informal talks on ongoing work, and for journal club-type discussions of new papers, drafts from interaction meetings members, or classics.
