Verbatim Annual Colloquium: Call for Abstracts

Open to all undergraduate students! Submit your abstract by March 22.

Verbatim, the University of Calgary Undergraduate Linguistics Society is hosting its Annual Colloquium on March 26 and is inviting all interested undergraduate students to present and/or attend.

Verbatim Annual Colloquium: Call for Abstracts - The Colloquium is an annual conference that Verbatim hosts for undergraduate students to present research in a supportive and informal environment. This event will be an inclusive, diverse academic conference to foster an environment of inclusivity between students and professors. The event will facilitate students’ research and presentation skills as well as encourage students to find out more about undergraduate level research. With this event, we are attempting to bring together our School of Linguistics, Language, Literature, and Culture as well as foster connections between our school and other faculties (e.g., Psychology Department), aligning with Verbatim’s mission of inclusion.

Funding and organization of this event will be done by Verbatim, so all presenters have to do is prepare their research to present. Faculty and students are also encouraged to simply attend and listen!

If this sounds like something you or others you know might benefit from or be interested in, you can send your abstract and a proposal of your lecture to our email:

The submission deadline is March 22nd at 11:59pm, so there’s still lots of time to sign up! If you have any questions regarding this event, you are more than welcome to also contact us at the email above. We hope to see you there!

Colloquium date: March 26, 2020  |  10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
