Panhispanic Studies


1.- Living Bilingually, by Julio Villa-García (University of Manchester)

In this interactive session, University of Manchester's professor Julio Villa-García will analyse a variety of preconceived ideas about bilingualism and multilingualism. These relate to child language acquisition, adult language learning, code-switching, the social prestige of bilingualism (or lack thereof), and the impact of bilingualism on our minds.

Julio Villa-García is a researcher and lecturer in syntax, grammar and Spanish Linguistics at the University of Manchester. He studied at several institutions in Spain, the UK and the USA, where he received his PhD in Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics from the University of Connecticut in 2012. Since then, he has held permanent academic positions in the USA and the UK. He has published a book on Spanish syntax as well as numerous professional articles on syntax and its acquisition, especially in bilingual contexts.
