Seminars, Conferences and Events
The Department of Linguistics at SOAS is host to a range of academic events and seminars throughout the year. In addition to the Departmental Seminars that run at regular intervals during term time, there are also regular special events, workshops and conferences. Details of future and previous events in the Department of Linguistics can be accessed via the calendar below, or through links to the left.
In addition to the events held at SOAS, other events of interest to linguists regularly take place at other institutions in London. Details can be found on the London Linguistics Circle page.
The Linguistics Departmental Seminar Series is a forum for speakers to present their work to an audience of fellow academics and students of Linguistics. These seminars are open to members of SOAS and the wider academic community.
Meetings are normally held on Tuesdays at 3.30pm, in the SOAS Main Building.
Please contact Rachel Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org) the convenor of the seminar series, if you have any queries.
