Prof. Dr. Cornelia Hamann

Cornelia Hamann (Link) studied mathematics and English at the University of Freiburg focusing on formal semantics for her early research on adjectives or tense. Working with (psycho)linguists such as Adriana Beletti, Uli Frauenfelder, Liliane Haegeman, and Luigi Rizzi at the University of Geneva, she started to investigate syntactic phenomena in child language acquisition. In the multilingual environment provided by the city of Geneva, this area of research quickly broadened into bilingualism, multilingualism, L2-acquisition and their potential overlap with language impairment. In the last 20 years, she became an international expert in these fields, published influential papers on child language and language impairment or gave plenary talks at important international conferences.

As professor at the University of Oldenburg she has held several research grants such as AULIN, GIF 113-97.4/2010 and BiLaD. She has also served as member in the COST Action IS0804 investigating language impairment in a multilingual society. Especially the COST network and the projects with Israel and France aim at defining (a)typical bilingualism by comparative study of language development in different L1/ L2 combinations so that educational expectations and policies can be adapted to the realities of multilingual societies.
