We are planning to have our 3rd Annual Linguistics Department Undergraduate Research Colloquium on Friday, March 7th. This is your opportunity to present your research to a group of your linguistics peers, graduate students, and faculty! Students who have worked on their own projects as well as those who worked with faculty on linguistics research within or outside of the Linguistics Department are invited to participate. The format will be similar to a linguistics conference, with time for verbal presentations and a poster presentation session.
Please note that you don’t need to have your project 100% complete to present your work – even if you haven’t completed your analysis, you can discuss your research question(s), hypotheses, methods, initial results, etc. You also don’t necessarily have to be registered for LING 499 for research to present – in the past, we’ve had some students give very interesting presentations on the work they were doing for one of their classes. Conference presentations look great on a resume or CV, so presenting your research is also a great way to improve your chances of finding a job or getting into graduate school.
If you are interested in participating in the colloquium with either a poster or verbal presentation, please email me your interest by Sunday, February 2ndat firstname.lastname@example.org. There are limited verbal presentation slots and these are first come first serve, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would prefer a verbal presentation.
