SQUID: Showcasing Quirky and Unusual Ideas in Development

APR 12, 2013 | 9:00 AM TO 5:00 PM



The Graduate Center

*Open only to GC Linguistic Students*

These talks can be funny or serious, but the general theme is informality. Talks for SQUID are so informal, in fact, that they can easily be put together in under a week. Students who give talks at SQUID get a chance to present in front of peers in a congenial, nonthreatening atmosphere.  Students who choose to attend (and not to present) get a chance to listen to some really interesting talks and to mingle with fellow linguistics students in a congenial, nonthreatening atmosphere. Plus, everybody gets to eat fried calamari and drink beer at school.

Please email your abstract--or even just a title!--by Friday, March 22nd to Michelle and Syelle at:

We are also in great need of volunteers to assist putting SQUID together on the day of the conference. Please write to Michelle and Syelle if you can help, for all or part of the day.
