Meeting Description:

Please see the CfP for the upcoming Sheffield Postgraduate Conference in Linguistics (ShefLingPGC2019). This conference will be aimed at students (MA, PhD, etc.) and ECRs in linguistics. The theme of the conference will be Language Variation and Identity - for which we welcome broad interpretations.

We are looking for people who might be interested in presenting at this event to send abstracts to us by the 10 May, 2019. Students are also welcome to attend without presenting for an opportunity to learn more about research that is happening in the field, and to see our plenary talks delivered by Prof Jennifer Smith (Uni of Glasgow) and Dr Carmen Llamas (Uni of York).

This will be a free event, with lunch and refreshments provided, and will provide students with a supportive environment in which to present their research and gain valuable feedback and comments, as well as networking opportunities to meet peers with similar research interests.

We would be very grateful if you could widely share this with anyone it may be relevant to.

Thank you!

Johanna Blakey and Nathaniel Dziura
