Organization profile

The Language, Communication and Cognition (LCC) program explores cognitive and social aspects of human communication through a multi-method approach, combining carefully designed experiments with survey methods, corpus analyses, computational modelling, and digital ethnographic methods. Core research topics include communication & technology, cross-cultural communication, business communication, information visualisation, language production & understanding, and non-verbal communication.

New media and other digital technologies play an important role in the LCC program. New communication technologies increasingly shape how we live, learn and work, and they strongly influence how we communicate with colleagues, family and friends. Our research contributes to developing better digital communication systems, with applications in eHealth, affective computing, media, journalism, and education. Digital skills  — understanding the problems and prospects of computers and other digital technologies, and being proficient in working with them  — are among the most valued 21st century skills and they play important roles in both our research and in our teaching.
