mission & vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning -- that is, finding out about life?


anglistentag 2018

We were delighted to host the 2018 annual conference of the Deutscher Anglistenverband in the same year that our university is celebrating its 200th anniversary. The Anglistentag 2018 took place at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn from 23-26 September 2018.
