Every spring, the Linguistics Graduate Student Association at UNC-Chapel Hill puts on its annual Spring Colloquium. We invite fellow linguists from all over to present and discuss current topics of interest in the field in an all-day conference. This coming spring it will take place on April 7th, with Dr. Penelope Eckert as our keynote speaker. A pdf of the schedule can be found here.
