No Semantic Typology Lab today as Juergen has fled Buffalo for a warmer clime.
Here’s what we’ve got coming in the next few weeks:
March 5: Holly Keily will lead a workshop discussion on quantitative analysis built off ELAN data
March 12: Alice Mitchell will present a Field Report of her time in Tanzania, and Tim Tilbe will give a dry-run of his presentation to his Dissertation Committee
March 19: No lab, Spring Break
March 26: Juergen will present on Language Evolution and Game Theory
April 2: Yen-Ting Lin will present on Bilingualism and a History of Left/Right terms in China
You can also check out our new Schedule of Topics page to see what we’ve got planned.
This week we’re back to our normal schedule, Thursday at 4:30 in 617 Baldy, and we have a guest presentation!
Dorothea Hoffmann will present “Frames of Reference in Three Australian Languages.” She is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. She works on Australian languages and linguistics, focusing on Jaminjung, Kriol, and MalakMalak.
Special date and time! We’ll meet at 2:00 this Friday, February 13th in Baldy 603 as we welcome our prospective students into the lab.
We’re going to have STLab members give brief “elevator-pitch” introductions of themselves and their interests / work. Come feel the love!
This week (Thursday, 5 February at 4:30, in Baldy 617) we have Randi Moore presenting a field report on her recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. Below is a summary of her presentation:
I’ ll present a field report of how my recent field trip in Oaxaca, Mexico went, as I collected data for my dissertation. My presentation will start at 5 (I teach until then), but arrive at 4:30 for a discussion with Juergen about creating institutions for semantic typologists.
