Coming soon: GLOWing lectures

As part of GLOW’s efforts of community-building, outreach, and strengthening of the generative community, GLOW will start a quarterly online lecture series GLOWing lectures: Discoveries in generative linguistics.

The goal of GLOWing lectures is to provide tools, insights, and puzzles that will bring out why generative linguistics is important, invigorating, and relevant.

GLOWing lectures are intended to be exciting, inspiring, educational, and accessible across generative subfields. There are two broad categories of GLOWing lectures:

  • What you should know about subfield X? These lectures teach professionals from other generative subfields (semantics, phonology etc.) important tools and technologies of one subfield.
  • What is exciting in subfield X? These lectures provide significant discoveries and results from one subfield.

Both types of GLOWing lectures inspire further engagement within the subfield of the lecture and/or create discussions across subfields. Furthermore, both also provide material and resources (to be made available to the GLOW membership) for further teaching and outreach. 

GLOWing lectures will have a 120 minute slot, with a lecture between 45−60 minutes, 30 minutes for discussions, and a remaining time for chatting and socializing. Partial attendance will, of course, be encouraged as well.

In 2023−2024, we will aim for talks in the subfields (not necessarily in this order) semantics, phonology, morphology, syntax, field research/linguistic variation, experimental linguistics. In future years, we may add further areas of interest for the generative community.

The first talks will be open to anyone (later, only GLOW members will receive the link to attend the talks—but remember that GLOW membership fees are very low for now!).

We invite our members to e-mail us suggestions for GLOWing lecture speakers (please include a 1 sentence explanation).
