LinG Colloquium Series
Summer Term 2021
Unless announced otherwise, the LinG Colloquium will take place on Wednesdays, 4–6 pm (ct).
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the meetings will not be held in the usual way but in the form of a video conference. For this the video conference provider Zoom will be used. Detailed information as to how to join the meetings will be shared via the LinG mailing list.
