Lectures and Talks
A broad range of groups organizes lectures and talks at LUCL. Speakers are invited from universities and renowned research insitutes all over the world. The aim is to present and exchange ideas on linguistic topics and to improve national and international collaboration.
- Friday Afternoon Lectures
- Language and Cognition Group (LACG)
- Leiden Utrecht Semantics Happenings (LUSH)
- Monthly Lunch Meeting
- Syntax Circle
- Syntax Lab
The Friday Afternoon Lectures concern descriptive and comparative linguistics. Both data-oriented and theory-driven approaches are welcomed.
|The Language and Cognition Group (LACG) aims to discuss and improve ongoing research within the Faculties of Humanities and Social and Behavioural Sciences, with a special emphasis on language topics.|
The Leiden Utrecht Semantics Happenings (LUSH) is a series of monthly lectures on semantics, alternating between Leiden and Utrecht.
The Monthly Lunch Meetings are organised by the VICI Project The Codifiers and the English Language. During these meetings different speakers will present informal papers relating to their research.
The Syntax Circle is co-organised by linguists from Leiden University, Universiteit Utrecht, Universiteit van Amsterdam, and the Meertens Institute.
The purpose of the Syntax Lab (previously called 'Wednesday Syntax Meetings') is to give syntacticians from LUCL and outside the opportunity to present their work in an informal setting. This is the ideal place to present work in progress, do a mock defense, do dry runs for a conference or simply present a syntactic problem one would like to share with other people. If you have any suggestions, please contact one of the organizers.
