Postgraduate Conference: Representations of Discourse

24 January 2012

Location: University of East Anglia

Date: 8 Jun 2012

A one-day PG Conference organised by the University of East Anglia’s School of Language and Communication Studies

The theme of the conference is intentionally broad, and will be of interest to those pursuing postgraduate studies in diverse linguistics-related disciplines. Plenary speakers will include Dr Christopher Hart from the University of Northumbria. We look forward to ending our conference with a roundtable discussion which all delegates will be invited to attend. Our two plenary speakers will be joined by three professionals from outside academia, and together they will share their insights into issues which have been raised throughout the day. Participation from audience members in the form of questions to the panel will be welcome.
