The Carleton Linguistics Department
Linguistics is the study of the remarkable human capacity to learn and use natural languages. Prominent questions include the nature of the systems of mental representation (both abstractly and neurologically characterized), how these representations arise, how they change, how they are written, and how languages are put to use in social and literary contexts.
The very first Minnesota Undergraduate Linguistics Symposium will take place at St. Olaf College on Saturday, April 13, 2013. Co-organizers are the Society of Undergraduate Linguists at the University of Minnesota, MacLinguistics at Macalaster, and Carleton Linguistics. Please click here for more information, and to register or submit a paper, either of which must be done by March 15.
We invite applications for a one-year appointment, at the rank of assistant professor, with a specialization in syntax and/or morphology, for the 2013-4 academic year.
