Meeting Description:

The University of Edinburgh's Linguistics and English Language Postgraduate Conference is an annual event where postgraduates present ongoing work and discuss their research with peers and LEL faculty.

The conference offers a great opportunity to refine thoughts, share concerns, and receive constructive criticism in a supportive and convivial environment. Additionally, it's a great way to gain experience in conference presentation and find out about some of the exciting things going on in LEL!

Participants and presenters are invited to attend a buffet lunch on 15 May and a drinks reception on 16 May. Tea and coffee will be provided on all three days.

More information can be found at the LEL PG Conference website:


The 2011 Organising Committee consists of postgraduate students in LEL: Rachael Bailes, Amanda Cardoso, Guy Edwards, Zoltan Galsi, Jing Han, Justin Quillinan, Sean Roberts, Manuela Rocchi, Laura Sterian, and Justin Sulik.

The organisers can be contacted at lel-pgced.ac.uk.

Call for Papers:

Please submit abstracts of 200 words to lel-pgced.ac.uk no later than 16 April. You may submit the abstract as text, word document or pdf. Please include your name and the title of your talk. If you would like to be considered for an extended session, you may present an abstract of up to 1 full page single spaced.

Any papers relevant to linguistics and English language are welcome. Although priority will be given to University of Edinburgh LEL students, all submissions are keenly encouraged.

The standard length of a talk will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes' question time. A limited number of extended sessions are also available, with 35 minutes for the presentation and 10-15 minutes for questions. This decision will be based on your submitted abstract, and is at the discretion of the organising committee.
