Hello all,

It’s Tuesday again, which means it’s time for our second fun fact! Have you
ever wanted an excuse to visit somewhere but can’t justify it because academic
life is hard? Conferences are the perfect excuse! Using LINGUIST List’s
geoling (, you can check out what conferences are
nearby your dream travel destination and plan accordingly. Geoling also lists jobs
and summer schools, so if you’re looking for a place to visit, or just want to see
what’s out there, take a look!

A brand new feature we just added to geoling, thanks to our very own intern
Julian Dietrich, is the ability to download contact cards, called vCards, from
the huge selection of contacts available through us. By selecting contacts on
the menu and then clicking on one of the pins, you can find the download vCard
button on the bottom of the short description. This will allow you to
automatically add that information to your list of contacts. And yes, it works
on both Android and iPhone.

We hope you enjoy the new feature! And there are more coming soon. Talk to you
next week for our next fun fact!

If you appreciate services provided by the LINGUIST List like book
announcements, please consider donating to our annual fund drive campaign. We
rely on your donations to continue operating and supporting our editors.

If you’ve already donated or just donated, thank you, we appreciate it.
