Friday Colloquium Series


About the Friday Colloquium

The UNC Linguistics Friday Colloquium series (not to be confused with the annual Spring Colloquium) serves three purposes:

  • a place for UNC graduate students and faculty to present current work for feedback and discussion in a friendly, supportive atmosphere
  • an opportunity for our department to host talks by speakers from other UNC departments or elsewhere
  • a venue for professional-development workshops for linguistics graduate students

All events this Fall of 2020 will take place from 3:30-4:30 pm, over Zoom, instead of Smith Building 107. If you are interested in attending or giving a Friday Colloquium talk, please contact the organizer, David Mora-Marín (davidmm@unc.edu).
