GLOW town hall meeting

November 24 & December 1, starting at 8:30 (NY), 14:30 (Vienna), 18:00 (New Delhi), 20:30 (Singapore). Please register HERE to attend!

As you know, earlier this year, the GLOW community voted to wait a year for our next colloquium, and not hold one in 2024, to provide some breathing room in which to reconsider our structure and goals. To help with this process, the GLOW board will hold a two-day online meeting this autumn (Nov 24 & Dec 1). We view this meeting both as the beginning of a “listening tour” for the GLOW board and as an opportunity for our members (and generative linguists in general) to exchange views and ideas about the future of GLOW as an organization and the GLOW colloquium.

A group of discussants will share their views on the role of GLOW in linguistics and the GLOW Colloquium in an informal conversation moderated by the GLOW board. All GLOW members are invited to participate in this conversation and provide feedback and ideas.

Discussants: David Adger, Artemis Alexiadou, Daniel Altshuler, John Bailyn, Roberta d’Alessandro, Marcel den Dikken, Katharina Hartmann, Angelica Hill, Gillian Ramchand, Jenneke van der Wal, Marc van Oostendorp, Hedde Zeijlstra.

We understand that attending online meetings in two consecutive weeks is a serious investment of your time. Please feel free to attend as much of the meetings as you can. If you cannot attend, we encourage you to e-mail us any feedback you may have before the meeting so that we can share it in the discussion.

The topics will include (but are not limited to):

GLOW as an organization

  • What kind of an organization does generative linguistics need in Europe or the world?
  • What kinds of activities should GLOW promote (journals, summer schools, travel support, other ideas)?
  • Should GLOW be more inclusive towards particular subfields of linguistics?  If so, how can we best bring that about?
  • How can young researchers be better supported by GLOW?

The GLOW Colloquium

  • Length of talks and discussion periods
  • Poster sessions
  • Publication of proceedings

We would love to hear your opinion on any of these topics. If you have not registered yet, please do so here:

We look forward to hearing your feedback.
