2. Please state your reasons for choosing Venice and the Department for your research and teaching stay.
Valentin Vulchanov will collaborate with the BemboLab staff, students and visitors in the implementation of experimental designs for the study of monolingual and bilingual children and young adults with typical and atypical language development. He will actively meet with students and staff for current and future joint projects. He will also be in the Scientific Board and among the organizers of the conference Behavioural Measures of Language Acquisition and language processing in typical and atypical populations to be held in Venice on May 20-21, 2020, which is a joint effort of the Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab at NTNU and the Venice Accessibility Lab and the Bembo Lab of Ca’ Foscari.
3. Have you ever had a research collaboration with the teaching staff of Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies in the past?
My collaboration with the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies dates back to the 90-ies and is reflected in seminal work on the diachrony of nominal expressions in Old Bulgarian/Early Slavic together with Prof. Giuliana Giusti and Prof. Mila Vulchanova. This collaboration continues to the present with we work on joint projects on the experimental study of language.
