The Department of Linguistics gathers together on each Friday during the regular semester for research colloquia, graduate workshops, or graduate coffee hours. Colloquia are headlined early in each semester by faculty presentations of current research. We also bring in scholars of note in the various areas of linguistics, including an annual Students’ Choice scholar each spring. Graduate workshops discuss the many areas of becoming a fruitful and productive scholar and teacher. These workshops are conducted by faculty, who share their experience in the academic discipline and beyond.
