Party and conferences

With the end of the semester (and indeed the year) fast approaching, it's time for a series of English Unit events! In chronological order (click posters for larger images, and feel free to spread the word on Facebook or wherever ;) ):

Christmas Party and Tombola Extravaganza

Come and join the X-Mas fun on Wednesday 10 December as of 6 pm in the English Literature seminar (with an audiovisual pre-party Christmas treat in the English Linguistics seminar for whoever is free and up for it)...

BA2 student conference on keywords and icons of anglophone cultures

The yearly BA2 presentations on a selection of keywords and icons from different anglophone regions will be held on Tuesday 16 December from 2 to 4 pm in the English Linguistics seminar.

BA3 student conference on corpus linguistics

This year's corpus presentations are all based on data from the Corpus of Contemporary American English, compiled by Mark Davies, and investigate recent and ongoing changes in American English from 1990 to the present day. The conference takes place on Tuesday 16 December from 4.10 to 5.40 pm in the English Linguistics seminar.

See (some of) you soon at any or all of these events!
