LinGhentian Doctorials 2019Show content
The "LinGhentian Doctorials" conference - by and for PhD students in language studies - creates an opportunity for both seasoned PhD students and those who only just started their PhDs to present (some aspects of) their research to a broad audience of scholars in language studies. This allows for in-depth interaction with and feedback from scholars of various backgrounds and is meant to be complementary to the feedback of their supervisors. It is also a great opportunity to expand their networks to colleagues studying languages in different departments.
This call is directed to PhD students of language studies across different departments of Ghent University:
- Translation, Interpreting and Communication
- Languages and Cultures
The aim is to build bridges between theoretical, empirical and applied linguists and to strengthen the bonds between PhD students with somewhat different backgrounds and frameworks, methodologies, objects of study, etc.
The LinGhentian Doctorials 2019 will take place on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 December in the Faculty room of the Faculty of Arts (Blandijnberg 1, 9000 Gent). All PhD students who would like to participate are kindly requested to submit the following to email@example.com:
- A provisional title no later than Sunday 10 November 2019;
- An abstract (max. 1 page, references excluded) no later than Sunday 17 November 2019.
Participants can freely choose the topic and format of their presentation. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes and will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Group presentations (e.g. projects) are eligible for an extended duration.
All presentations will be delivered by PhD students, but of course all academic staff and interested students are most welcome to attend the event and provide feedback or ask questions.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
