Linguistic Sub-field: Applied Linguistics 


Meeting Description:

The purpose of this conference is to provide a pressure-free
environment where graduate students studying Applied Linguistics/TESOL
can have the experience of presenting their work. Many graduate
students want the chance to be initiated into the circle of conference
presenters, but don't feel ready to present at the same conference
with experienced conference participants. In addition, many of these
large conferences do not have sufficient space for graduate-student
papers. The TALGS Spring Conference provides graduate students a forum
to showcase their research and works-in-progress in a suitable
environment. This conference will also provide an opportunity to
network and make friends with your future colleagues.
