Linguistics Circle and Graduate Proseminar

Linguistics Circle (LingCircle) is a weekly to biweekly colloquium and workshop series sponsored by the CU Linguistics Department. LingCircle events are open to everyone and no registration is required. Refreshments are served. In Spring 2014, LingCircle talks will alternate with proseminar talks, the latter of which will be held on Wednesdays. Proseminar talks are designed to enhance the professional development of Linguistics doctoral students. All first-year PhD students are required to attend. Other PhD students are strongly encouraged to attend, as are MA students.

All events are held on Mondays or Wednesdays, from 4:00-5:30, in CLRE 104, unless otherwise noted.
