Meeting Description:

The T.W.I.S.T. conference for linguistics gives undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students the unique opportunity to present their original research in a friendly atmosphere with fellow students and researchers and to meet them in a casual environment. The conference will be organized on the 10th of April (2015) at Leiden University. The conference will be held in English.

T.W.I.S.T., the Leiden student association for Linguistics and African Languages and Cultures has organized this students’ conference for the past eight years. This edition is also expected to be a notable event for young students and researchers that everyone who is interested in linguistics will surely want to experience.

Some topics from past conferences are: “Nominal tense: how Amazonian languages punch us in the face”, “The paradoxal combination of ‘yes no’ in spoken Dutch”, “Word learning strategies in SLI teenagers” and “Gallo-Romance in the Lex Salica”.

What We Offer:

The T.W.I.S.T. students’ conference offers you a truly academic yet open and informal platform to present your research to fellow students and fellow researchers from all over the country. Naturally, as a speaker you are invited to attend lectures by guest speakers, students and postgraduates. A lunch is provided.

In between lectures and during the breaks you will have plenty of opportunities to meet and converse with fellow students, researchers and academic lecturers. The average number of students and researchers visiting previous conferences is 60.


The conference will be held in the Lipsius building, Cleveringaplaats 1, 2311BD Leiden.
