Queen’s University Belfast is pleased to announce its Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference 2013 (ILinC 2013), a student-led venture co-organised by the Schools of English, Education and Modern Languages.

This one-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 ‘Evolving perspectives: Innovative approaches to language studies’. With this theme, we seek to explore new approaches to language study, such as innovative methodologies, collaborative projects, the development of new models, and research into previously neglected subject areas. The conference will promote internationalisation by bringing researchers from across the globe together and by providing vital networking opportunities.

Possible topics of paper proposals include, but are not limited to:

- Applied linguistics
