Linguistics Fridays are back

Fridays @ 4:00

We continue our tradition of coming together each week for some stimulating linguistic discussion on Friday afternoons. Linguistics Fridays will be online this semester, but they will still be happening!

As in previous years, the program will include a mixture of colloquium talks and reading groups. Here is the schedule that has been confirmed to date – continue to check our Events page for updates as more talks are added throughout the semester.
