Essex Graduate Conference in Linguistics
The Essex Graduate Conference in Linguistics (EGCL) takes place in spring
each year. It provides an opportunity for postgraduate students in our
Department to present their work to our linguistics staff and student
community under conference-like conditions. Presenting at the conference
offers several benefits:
- giving a presentation on your work forces you to structure and evaluate
it. This in turn enables you to spot and hence remedy flaws in arguments and
to identify new ways forward.
- it will enable you to get feedback from others on what you have done so
far and to benefit from their advice about what you might do in the future
in terms of new lines of exploration, more appropriate tools or techniques
and helpful literature.
- it is an excellent opportunity to get conference practice in friendly
