Essex Graduate Conference in Linguistics

Join us

The Essex Graduate Conference in Linguistics (EGCL) takes place in Spring each year. It provides an opportunity for our postgraduate students to present their work to our linguistics staff and student community under conference-like conditions.

EGCL has been held annually since 1996 with papers delivered on topics across the linguistics discipline.

Present your work

The benefits:

  • giving a presentation on your work forces you to structure and evaluate it. This enables you to spot and correct flaws in arguments and identify new ways forward
  • you can get feedback from others on what you have done so far and benefit from their advice about what you might do in the future for new lines of exploration, more appropriate tools or techniques and helpful literature
  • it's an excellent opportunity to get conference practice in friendly surroundings.


Our 23rd conference

We're held our conference on Monday 26 March 2018. All linguistics-related topics were welcomed, including applied linguistics, ELT, phonology, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and syntax.
