Every semester, the department hosts several colloquia covering a variety of topics in Linguistics. These typically take place twice a month at 3:00 pm. They usually last about an hour, with a question and answer session at the end of the talk. Abstracts are provided by the presenters and can be downloaded as a PDF file once they become available.
Due to ongoing COVID restrictions and the need for social distancing, colloquia during the Fall 2020 semester will take place online. Zoom links for these colloquia will be made available closer to the day of the colloquia.
Linguistics talks are on Monday, 4:00-5:00 pm. They usually last about an hour, with a question and answer session at the end of the talk. Zoom links will be announced, or you can request them from Caleb Ewing or Keng-Yu Lin.
