The Sociolinguist Essex Conference is organised by postgraduate research students from the Department of Language and Linguistics. It provides a friendly platform for sharing ideas and receiving constructive feedback, with no fees required. Presenters include current and former members of the University of Essex postgraduate community, including Master and PhD students, as well as 3rd Year Undergraduates, and staff.
The annual, one-day conference hosts postgraduate and 3rd Year students who wish to present their research on topics relating to the field of sociolinguistics, including but not limited to: conversation analysis, language variation, prestige and maintenance, language policy and planning, and other similar areas of research. Presenters have the option to share their research by oral or poster presentation.
