PGR presentations

The aim of our presentations series is to provide a space where postgraduates from all faculties and departments across the University can discuss their work in a friendly and supportive environment. It is also a great opportunity to network with fellow researchers who work on similar or related topics.

Presentations of research at any stage are welcomed, including:

  • Provisional research ideas and questions;
  • Works-in-progress;
  • Finished chapters/articles;
  • Practice presentations for conferences;
  • Papers ready to be submitted for publication

We encourage contributions from as many diverse fields as possible, including, but not limited to:

  • Corpus linguistics
  • Computational linguistics
  • Translation
  • First and second language acquisition
  • Language pedagogy
  • Forensic linguistics
  • Language and theology
  • Pragmatics
  • Syntax and grammatical theory
  • Language and social media
  • (Critical) Discourse Analysis

Presentations should be 20 minutes long and will typically be followed by a 10 or 20-minute discussion, with questions and feedback. If you would like to present, please send an email to Giulio Bajona (ml15gb@leeds.ac.uk) with the following information:

  • Your name;
  • Your Faculty/School/Department;
  • A short bio, including your research interests and professional background;
  • Title of your presentation;
  • Abstract or outline of your presentation (up to 200 words);
  • When you would be available to present.
