Kent lecturer helps organise the first International Conference on Linguistics Communication

University of KentA Senior Lecturer in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Kent is on the organising committee for LingComm2021, the first International Conference on Linguistics Communication.

Dr Laura Bailey is part of the team that is putting together LingComm21, a conference that will bring together lingcommers from a variety of backgrounds, including linguists who have developed skills in communicating with public audiences and communicators who have developed a “beat” related to language. LingComm21 is a small, highly interactive conference featuring a mix of beginner and advanced panels on specific areas of lingcomm, as well as smaller special sessions emerging from the shared interests of attendees.

Confirmed invited speakers at LingComm21 so far include: Kate Burridge from Monash University; Nicole Holliday from the University of Pennsylvania; Ben Zimmer from The Wall Street Journal and Mignon Fogarty from Grammar Girl.

This is an international conference and for much of the world, it will run from Monday 19th April to Wednesday 22nd April 2021, in a single four-hour block each day beginning at UTC 20:00 (9pm GMT). For those on the leading edge of time zones, the conference will run from Tuesday 20th April to Thursday 23rd 2021, beginning at 6am in Melbourne and 8am in Auckland.
