Spring Colloquium

UNC Linguistics Spring Colloquium 2022

Saturday, March 26th, 2022

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. The Colloquium is free for all who present or attend; there is no registration fee.

The Linguistics Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will be accepting abstracts for its 2022 Spring Colloquium starting November 11th. The conference will be held Saturday, March 26th, 2022 on Zoom with Dr. Steven Piantadosi from UC Berkeley and Dr. Jason Rothman from The Arctic University of Norway as keynote speakers.

Papers and posters are invited on any topic in all areas of Linguistics. Paper presentations will be 20 minutes long (in English) followed by a 10-minute discussion period. It will again feature a poster session during the coffee hour after its small but mighty success last year. This year, we would love to have even more submissions especially from undergraduate students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to present their work.

Abstracts should be no longer than one page in 12-point font with an optional second page for examples, figures, tables, and/or references. Please do not include any author information in your abstract. Abstracts containing identifying information will not be considered.

The deadline for submission is Sunday, January 14, 2022. Those accepted will be notified no later than Sunday, February 11, 2022. If you have any difficulties submitting your abstract, please contact the Colloquium Committee at
