19.08.2019

170 participants and 25 outstanding lecturing experts made the world’s first summer school on experimental pragmatics a great success. The DGfS Summer School 2019 „Experimental Pragmatics: Theory, Methods, Interfaces“ was organized by the DFG priority program 1727 „XPrag.de“ and hosted by ZAS Berlin. The program was chalk-full, featuring 20 courses on a wide spectrum of topics in the relatively new field of Experimental Pragmatics, alongside inspiring evening lectures and a Science Speed Geeking event. Of course, the school also included a rich variety of social and group activities, including a visit to the museum of natural science, a city walk, a beach volleyball tournament, and a glamourous farewell party.
