New Developments

The Language and Linguistics Working Group is now partnering with the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures. We have even more members than before, and enthusiasm is building for a place for this topic here at Notre Dame. We are planning to have 3 events every semester: discussion about shared reading, local faculty or graduate student presentations, and outside speakers.

Our members come from across campus, sometimes from departments or colleges that had not previously been represented. Stay tuned for news of the upcoming events.

Feel free to post here–relevant news, interesting readings, or events!

Happy New Year!
