The Descriptive Linguistics group at Leiden University is organizing the first Leiden Linguistic Diversity Colloquium coming Wednesday afternoon May 29. In this first colloquium a number of members of our group will give short presentations related to their current research projects. The idea is to familiarize students and colleagues at LUCL with our research and create a platform for a broad debate on linguistic diversity.

We hope to see many of you and, in order to have enough coffee/tea, cookies, beverages, and appetizers for everyone, we kindly request you to register for the event as soon as possible but ultimately before May 22 at: https://forms.gle/mEMQX6rxJ3PZaqd7A
