We've ordered all the food now, so registration is closed! You are still very much welcome to come to the conference, however be aware that we may not be able to make accommodations for dietary restrictions and such at this point.
See you this weekend at Bissel! :)
We are pretty much a week away from TULCON now! Woohoo!
- The schedule is now posted! Check out who's presenting what and when!
- Please register if you're planning on attending, even if you're just there as a volunteer or don't intend to go for the entire weekend! It really helps us out with our planning. :D (plus, registering for things is so much fun! feels so official...)
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Hello friends, and welcome back to the new semester! We know you are already pining for the (relative) peace and festivitifulness of the winter break, and so we are once again conspiring to bring you a night of child-like play*! Come up to the Linguistics Lounge on Thursday, January 23rd at 6 PM and play board games with all your linguist friends! There will be snacks and treats and drinks which we will consume long into the night. (If you have dietary restrictions, please email us at slugs [dot] chass [dot] utoronto [dot] ca, and let us know what you can and can't eat so that we may feed you too. <3)
The Linguistics Lounge is located on the 4th floor of Sidney Smith; take the elevator or the stairs up, turn right, and walk down to almost the end of the hallway. Hope to see you there!
*Disclaimer: LTAG is not appropriate for children; some linguists may not be appropriate for children.
Come in from the cold and gather 'round for the End-of-Term Party, eating delicious foods with your awesome friends in the warm lounge and enjoying the dulcet tones of the department band, F-Zero!
(For seriously, the Linguistics Department has a BAND: click here for recordings and music/linguistics jokes. I hear they will be handing out sheet music and lyrics sheets for people who want to sing along to the Christmas and Hanukkah carols. :D :D)
The Linguistics Lounge is on the 4th floor of SS (take the stairs or the elevator and turn right when you emerge; walk straight down the hall until you're almost at the end or until you notice the giant crowd of people).
Come come come! See you tomorrow! :D
SLUGS is excited to announce its 7th annual Toronto Undergraduate Linguistics Conference (TULCON), to be held on March 7-9, 2014!
TULCON is a great opportunity for undergraduate linguists to meet their peers, share their work, and further their appreciation for linguistics and language-related studies.
We invite research, complete or in progress, from any area of linguistics. Abstracts should be approximately 500 words in length (not including references). Please submit your abstracts in .pdf or .doc (NOT .docx) format to tulcon2014[AT]gmail.com by Friday January 31st, 2014. In your submission, please indicate whether you would like to present a talk or a poster during our poster session. Speakers will have the opportunity to present for 20 minutes, followed by an additional five-minute question period.
Citizens of countries who require a visa to enter Canada may submit abstracts early. In your submission, please indicate approximately how much time you require to secure your visa. We will try our best to review your abstract and send notification of acceptance at an earlier date.
Stay tuned for more announcements about registration in the future! If you have any questions, please contact us at tulcon2014[AT]gmail.com.
