The Centre for Language and Linguistics and the Department of English Language and Linguistics are organising a Research Day on Friday 14 June 2019. During this annual event, members of staff and postgraduate students will present their work in progress projects.
The event will be an opportunity for speakers to receive feedback from experts in all different branches of linguistics and related disciplines, as well as testing new ideas and discussing new collaborations. The event also includes an invited speaker, Dr Jonathan Kasstan, who graduated with a BA in French in 2009 and a PhD in Linguistics in 2017, and is currently a lecturer and Leverhulme-funded researcher at the University of Westminster.
