13-14 November, The University of Manchester
With the idea of creating a greater network for new linguistics researchers, this event is being held as a forum for the most current research going on in the UK and internationally. The forum provides an opportunity to meet others working in interrelated fields of linguistics, giving the introductions needed for a researcher at the beginning of a career. It should be a great opportunity to share research and learn about the latest generation of linguists in a sociable atmosphere.
