ILinC 2012 - Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference
Exploring Contexts: Language at Crossroads of Society and Culture
November 9-10, 2012
Queen's University Belfast: Schools of Education, English and Modern Languages

Queen's University Belfast is pleased to announce its Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference 2012 (ILinC 2012), a student-led venture co-organised by the Schools of Education, English, and Modern Languages. Given the success of the last ILinC, this two-day conference will give researchers studying language in all academic disciplines the opportunity to exchange information about their research practice in the presence of distinguished and esteemed academics in the field of linguistics. In addition, the event aims to bring together researchers from different academic divisions carrying out language studies in order to foster cross-disciplinary contact.

This year's conference theme is 'Exploring Contexts: Language at Crossroads of Society and Culture'. With this theme, we seek to examine the interactional, communicative, societal and cultural functions of language. The conference will promote internationalisation by bringing researchers from across the globe together and by providing vital networking opportunities.

Plenary Speakers:

Professor Paul Kerswill (University of York)
Professor Lesley Milroy (University of Oxford)
Professor Ruth Wodak (Lancaster University)
