Here is a description of the reading group from Dan Siddiqi:
“We meet every week as a general linguistics topics group. We cover a variety of topics though mostly what we do is talk about papers that have been relevant to our research lately (by presenting some paper that is relevant) or we present on our current work. We have also just used the time as a round table to just generally talk about current topics in linguistics. In short, this is an hour a week where we get together as a group and be linguists.”
The first meeting will take place at Carleton University: Friday September 16, at 2.30 in Dutton 2203.
At the first meeting, there will be a presentation by Dan Siddiqi (a preview of a talk he will be giving in Berlin). Please get in touch with Dan if you would like to be on the group’s mailing list (daniel_siddiqi”at”Carleton.ca).
