About Us

The Sociolinguistic Cocktail Lecture Series regularly brings prominent speakers to our region to discuss up-to-date issues on the topic of language, society, and multilingualism. 

But science doesn't need to be dry. After the talk, we invite the audience to discover our analogy between science and the gustatory universe, presenting a unique drink that builds on the linguistic and cultural ingredients of the lecture of the day. 

This series is a regional initiative of the Sociolinguistics Lab of Duisburg-Essen, headed by Prof. Isabelle Buchstaller, and the Sociolinguistic Lab of Cologne, headed by Prof. Aria Adli.
