Meeting Description:

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies at the Ohio State University are pleased to announce the 10th Graduate Colloquium on Slavic Linguistics. The colloquium, hosted by the Slavic Linguistics Forum, will take place on October 27, 2012, at the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, OH. In the past this event has featured panels on many topics, including morphology, syntax, language acquisition, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, phonology, phonetics, semantics, language contact, dialectology and psycholinguistics. We anticipate a wide range of topics covering a wide range of Slavic languages.

We are also very happy to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Grace Fielder. Dr. Fielder is in the Russian and Slavic Studies Department and the Second Language Acquisition and Teaching Program at the University of Arizona where she teaches courses on Slavic linguistics, language and identity, and semiotics. Her research focuses on the discourse, pragmatics, and historical sociolinguistics of the Balkan languages. She will be a Fulbright scholar in Spring 2013 at the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, teaching in the translation studies program. Her recent publications have been on discourse markers in the Balkan languages and include the co-translated Bulgarian novel, Bai Ganyo.
