Barcelona Linguistics HUB

22 de gener de 2020
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

With speakers from different research groups from UB, UAB and UPF

Sala de Graus
Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres
Main organizer: Ángel J. Gallego


For decades, Barcelona has been (still is) the focus of much research on Linguistics, up to the point that it can be seen as a “hub” for linguistic events and activities. The goal of this workshop is to create an open forum so that the research groups at Barcelona universities (UB, UAB, UPF) have the possibility to show what they are doing, exchange ideas, ask questions, and so on.
The format of the workshop is intended to be dynamic. Students are given a 20 minute slot (15+5) to give a “microtalk” that should focus on her/his research, which should be further connected to the activity of the relevant group.
