Meeting Description:

The School of Language and Communication Studies at the University of East Anglia invites you to a one-day postgraduate conference, to be held at the University of East Anglia on Friday 8 June 2012.

We hope to give postgraduates experience of presenting their work to a wider audience at a serious conference. The theme of the conference is intentionally broad, and will be of interest to those pursuing postgraduate studies in diverse linguistics-related disciplines.

Plenary speakers will include Dr Christopher Hart from the University of Northumbria, and Prof Andreas Musolff from the University of East Anglia. We look forward to ending our conference with a roundtable discussion which all delegates will be invited to attend. Our two plenary speakers will be joined by three professionals from outside academia, and together they will share their insights into issues which have been raised throughout the day. Participation from audience members in the form of questions to the panel will be welcome.
