2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages. Linguistics students at the University of Adelaide would like to mark this by inviting fellow students, staff, researchers and interested others to join us in a Post Graduate Linguistics Symposium. We will be discussing a broad range of topics related to this theme from around the world.
This will be a full day event with tea/coffee and a light lunch provided – if you have dietary requirements, please note this where requested in your booking.
Looking forward to an engaging and productive day – hope to see you there!
