Events and Deadlines

Friday, October 24, 2014 (All day)

Linguistics has diversified into an array of subfields, each of which exemplifies an important facet of the science. However, the need for diversity and cooperation is ever-present. This conference aims to showcase linguistic experiences that have had positive results when incorporating two or more subfields in order to solve a problem or answer a research question. Whether it is the marriage of formal and functional theory or a joint venture between separate disciplines, working together allows researches to handle data and analyze findings in new and innovative ways.

For important dates and times, refer to the conference schedule. For other questions, please email Lindsey Antonini at antonini@uga.edu.
