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.
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.
You can view all of our past seminar talks on the Podcasts and Videos page. On the top left hand corner of the video displayed on this page, there are 3 small horizontal lines. Click on these and this will show a listing of all Linguistics seminars which have taken place at SOAS.
Meetings are normally held on Wednesdays at 3.30pm, in room FG01 in the Faber Building, unless stated otherwise. The current schedule is available below.
