Language Evolution, Acquisition and Processing (LEAP) is a workshop at the University of Chicago, funded by the Council on Advanced Studies.

We aim to facilitate interdisciplinary research bridging linguistics, psychology, anthropology, computer science, and neuroscience, as well as any other fields interested in the language sciences. Our workshop involves presentations of ongoing research both by UChicago-affiliated and invited external speakers, as well as in-depth discussion of published papers. We also invite student speakers who are willing to present their (ongoing) work.

Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in getting involved!
