Special Qualifications: ELBA is primarily aimed to Master and PhD students in linguistics and related fields. However, advanced undergraduates are highly welcome.

ELBA is a school aimed to foster the training of developing researchers in the field of linguistics by offering courses delivered both by international and local instructors. Our goal is threefold. We hope to encourage new researchers, to tight the bond between local and international linguists, and also to give students the opportunity to take part in ongoing debates in the field by allowing them the chance to discuss with the specialists themselves.

ELBA is meant to cover work on contemporary linguistic studies in the areas of theoretical linguistics, linguistic typology, and data collection/experimental methods.

ELBA will also host a one-day Workshop on Sat, Feb 8, for attendees to present their own works. Abstract submission is open. Check our website for more details.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
