EGCL17 - Call For
The Department invites abstracts of papers and posters to be presented at the
annual EGCL (Essex Graduate Conference in Linguistics). This will take place on Tuesday

part of research training for attendees and presenters alike, giving an
opportunity for students to experience an academic conference format, and to
meet with other students in the department.
