Graduate students to present at Qualifying Paper Symposia
[Updated April 18, 2016]
On two Fridays, April 15 and April 22, Yale linguistics graduate students in their second and third years will give talks based on their qualifying papers. These papers, one of which is required in each of the second and third years and which cover two different areas of linguistics, represent significant original research culminating in a work of publishable quality.
The department will be hosting qualifying paper talks in two symposia, with each talk lasting for twenty minutes with a ten-minute question/discussion period. The symposia are scheduled from 12:00-2:00 P.M. on April 15 and 12:00-1:30 on April 22 in LingSem, 201 Dow Hall (370 Temple Street). A light lunch will be served prior to the talks.
