The Arabic Language at Leeds PGR group was initiated in April 2016 by Janet C.E. Watson in response to the large number of students working on Arabic and related languages within LCS, Computing, Education and Media and Communication. The group was initiated to provide students with the chance to meet other PGRs working in the area, practise presentations, exchange ideas, identify specific training needs, and undergo area-specific training. The group meets every two weeks during term time, and this year sessions are held on a Monday from 2–3pm in the LHRI, Seminar room 1.
The PGR committee was formed in October 2017 and comprises: Roberta Morano <email@example.com> (organiser), Sarah Al-Mutairi <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Nouran Khallaf <email@example.com> and Malek Chaieb <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Any PGR working on any aspect of Arabic language is invited to contact members of the committee to attend the sessions or to offer a presentation. This is a great opportunity to practise a conference presentation, prepare for your upgrade or PhD viva, or suggest a training session.
