Notice: Hello all! I'm a grad student presenting at the International Linguistic Association conference in New Paltz, NY, being held April 15-17. I was wondering if any other female grad students who are attending the conference might be willing to share a hotel room with me. Please email me if you're interested!

Alternatively, if anyone in the New Paltz area were willing to offer crash space, that would be awesome.

Thank you!
