Undergraduate Linguistics Conference 2014

by Jeanette Sakel

Some of you may remember the second ULAB conference, which was held here at UWE Bristol. Now it’s time again to submit abstracts – this time for ULAB Edinburgh (April 2014)! This is your chance to talk about the research you’ve done so far (a project, an essay, a study of accents, etc.). All students are welcome to contribute, even those only just starting out. If you think a career in academia may be for you, this could be your chance to showcase your work and try out going to (and presenting at) a conference. If you need any support / help / guidance in writing your abstract, get in touch 🙂

Here’s what they write (with link):

“The University of Edinburgh is pleased to be hosting the 4th annual Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain (ULAB) Conference on the 26th and 27th of April 2014. Back once again to the site of the inaugural conference, this year’s conference aims to present dynamic, innovative undergraduate research on a variety of topics spanning the fields of linguistics and language studies. We invite you to submit your work for a chance to present your findings on this national platform. Currently, we are accepting abstracts of original, undergraduate research at a maximum of 400 words per abstract. Regardless of the stage of completion of your work, all submissions will be considered. This is a wonderful opportunity for budding undergraduate researchers to gain presentation experience and networking skills during a fun weekend with fellow language lovers! Submissions will be accepted until March 31. Please register and submit your abstracts at http://lingstudents.co.uk/.”
