Linguistic Sub-field: Sociolinguistics 
This is a session of the following conference: 15th Sociolinguistics
Symposium

Meeting Description:

This is a message for all postgraduate students who are planning to

Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1-4 April 2004, http://www.ncl.ac.uk/ss15, note

A Postgraduate Workshop will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday
31st March 2004. The workshop will run in two parallel sessions
followed by a common general discussion and question & answer
session. 

Session A: 'Kickstarting Your Research' is designed for research
postgraduates who are at the start of their studies and who are still
formulating their research questions, designing their methodologies,
and perhaps preparing to start data collection. 

Session B: 'Kickstarting your Career' will suit postgraduates who are
nearing submission of their theses. They may be thinking about shaping
their dissertation material for publication, and considering academic
career possibilities post-PhD. 

Although these sessions are most suitable for research postgraduates,
students studying for Masters degrees are also welcome. This is a
message for all postgraduate students who are planning to attend the
15th Sociolinguistics Symposium at the University of
Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1-4 April 2004, http://www.ncl.ac.uk/ss15, note
that registration deadline is 31st of January 2004).

followed by a drinks reception. However, places are limited and will
be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

A limited number of bursaries will also be available to Postgraduate
Students presenting at SS15. (Note that proposals for posters are
still being accepted!)
