PARLAY Conference:
Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics At York

Friday 12 September 2014

The University of York, Berrick Saul Building

After last year's great success, we are pleased to announce the 2nd Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics at York (PARLAY) conference. This one-day conference is designed to give linguistics postgraduates from all research areas an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a friendly and intellectually stimulating setting at the University of York.

Undergraduate students are also welcome to participate in this event. This year, PARLAY is being run as an interdisciplinary event by a committee comprised of researchers from the Departments of Linguistics, Education and Psychology.

The conference will be held on Friday 12 September 2014 in the Berrick Saul Building, which acts as a vibrant hub of research for postgraduates in the arts and humanities. A locally-sourced lunch will be provided, along with refreshments throughout the day. A conference dinner, to which all delegates are invited, will be held in York in the evening.

Plenary Speakers:

We are delighted to welcome Professors Peter Sells (University of York) and Dr John Williams (University of Cambridge) as plenary speakers for this event.
