Linguistics Research Seminars
Welcome to the 2020-2021 series of the USAL-UVA Linguistics Research Seminars. These seminars are organised by the MA and PhD Programme in Advanced English Studies at the Universities of Salamanca and Valladolid with the aim of providing students with an overview of different diachronic and synchronic approaches to the scientific study of language.
The USAL-UVA Linguistics Research Seminars are open to students in the MA and PhD Programme in Advanced English Studies. For the latter, these are also offered as part of their Training Activities. The seminars are likewise open to students in their final years of their degree who have an interest in linguistics and to the wider academic community.
Linguistics, as the scientific branch that studies language, is one of the two broad research areas that are part of the Master and PhD Programmes. Because of the wideness of the discipline, these seminars have been designed with the aim of providing students with access to contemporary approaches to the study of language, both from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. With this we are not only hoping to improve the linguistic training of students but also to offer them the chance of listening to contemporary researchers and practitioners in the field of English Studies. It is our hope that this will widen students’ horizons when thinking about potential topics for their dissertations.
