Meeting Description: 2nd International UCM Predoctoral Conference on English Linguistics (UPCEL)ː Language in Society

Facultad de Filología
Universidad Complutense - Madrid

The organising committee of the 2nd International UCM Predoctoral Conference on English Linguistics (UPCEL) are pleased to invite predoctoral students in English Linguistics programmes, including both PhD and Master's degree students, to participate in our second instantiation, which will be held on September 20, 21 and 22, 2017 at the Facultad de Filología, Universidad Complutense de Madrid. This conference is organised by the PhD Programme in English Linguistics of UCM, which has consistently maintained an Excellence Distinction by the Spanish Ministry of Education since 2004.

This conference intends to involve people from different fields who wish to share a common purpose and create an interdisciplinary space of solidarity and community; its objective is not only to show the crucial role of language in society, but also to be a meeting point where people working in diverse areas can collaborate. Therefore, this year's edition will serve as a forum for sharing and discussing topics related to English linguistics, especially welcoming contributions addressing social aspects and issues and how linguistics intertwines with them.

Confirmed Plenary Speakersː

Dr. Yolanda Joy Calvo Benzies (Universidad de las Islas Baleares)
Dr. Antonio García Gómez (Universidad de Alcalá)
Dr. Marco Tamburelli (Bangor University)
