SQUID is an informal conference held by the Linguistics Program at which students and faculty present twenty-minute talks on a variety of unusual linguistic topics.

Everyone is invited to submit an abstract! 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, so it's not too late! Those who give talks at SQUID get a chance to present in front of peers in a congenial, nonthreatening atmosphere.  Program members who choose to attend (and not to present) get a chance to listen to some really interesting talks and to mingle with fellow linguistics department members in a congenial, nonthreatening atmosphere. Plus, everybody gets to eat fried calamari and drink beer at school.
Please send your abstracts--or even just a title--to Rachel and Nora at:

We also still need volunteers to help put SQUID together the day of conference.  Please let us know if you're interested.
