McCCLU call for papers

Mon, 01/19/2015 - 01:50

The McGill Canadian Conference for Linguistics Undergraduates – McCCLU – will be held on March 13-15, 2015. It will be hosted at McGill by the Society of Linguistics Undergraduates of McGill (SLUM).

The aim of this conference is to encourage original endeavors into the world of research as well as to enrich the present academic undergraduate community within the field of linguistics. Although McCCLU remains a smaller-scale conference, it gives students from all subfields of linguistics the opportunity to present their theses and to have them reviewed, often for the first time. Each participant will have 20 minutes to present their research, followed by a 10 minute question period.

Call for Papers:

We are now calling for undergraduate students to submit abstracts for presentation at the conference on any subject matter within the domain of linguistics. Each abstract should detail material for a 20-minute presentation, with a 10-minute question period on issues raised afterward. Abstracts should be a maximum of one page in length (12 point font, 1 inch margins). The call deadline is February 2nd.

Please submit abstracts to mccclu2015gmail.com

Welcome Fulbright Fellow Carolyn Anderson

McLing is pleased to welcome Carolyn Anderson, who is joining the McGill Linguistics department this semester. Carolyn is a Fulbright scholar researching the role of technology in language revitalization, and plans to work with Jessica Coon on the Mi’gmaq project. She graduated last spring with a B.A. in Linguistics from Swarthmore College, and spent the past semester as a visiting researcher at University of Victoria. She is optimistic that one day the snow will melt enough to play Ultimate Frisbee again.
