Harvard’s undergrad linguists are having themselves a conference, to which any other undergrad linguists are invited to send abstracts proposing either a discussion topic or a short talk you could give on your own research. The conference is in late April, the abstract deadline is mid-March. If you’ve got something you’ve been working on, this would be a nice and relatively low-pressure group to bring it to. Or, you can just go to it in April. You can see what happened at previous colloquia at the LinG web site.
Here’s the real announcement:
4TH ANNUAL HARVARD UNDERGRADUATE LINGUISTICS COLLOQUIUM
Call for Papers
for the 4th Annual Undergraduate Linguistics Colloquium at Harvard
on the Harvard University campus, Cambridge, Massachusetts
April 22-23, 2006
The colloquium was initiated with the goal of developing an intercollegiate community of linguistics enthusiasts at the undergraduate level. In keeping with this broad aim, the conference is open to all interested students regardless of area of interest or level of training. Professor Marc Hauser of Harvard University will be featured as our keynote speaker, and undergraduates will also have the opportunity to present their own research. Student submissions are encouraged in a range of linguistic disciplines including, but not limited to, syntax, phonology, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, and psycholinguistics.
Undergraduates of all levels of expertise are invited to submit one-page abstracts proposing a roundtable discussion or a talk of not more than twenty minutes. (All participants must be pursuing a B.A., B.S., or equivalent degree.)
E-mailed abstracts (and questions!) will be accepted at:
The final deadline for receipt of all submissions is March 17, 2006.
Registration information will be available at the Harvard Undergraduate Linguistics Group website.
