Hey everyone! We have a new blog address: please visit us at USC Ling https://uscling.wordpress.com/
And here’s what is going on in our department this week:
USC is sending several presenters to NELS at Concordia University in Montreal: Alfredo Garcia-Pardo, Jessica Harmon, Brian Hsu, Lanko Marusic, and Charlie O’Hara!
Monday, October 12
Phon Lunch, 11am in the Conference Room: Charlie O’Hara on “Harmony in Harmonic Grammar by reevaluating faithfulness”
Colloquium, 3:30pm in the Conference Room : Sam Tilsen (Cornell University) will be presenting on Selection-coordination theory. Reception to follow.
Tuesday, October 13
Phon Lunch, 2:30pm in the Conference Room: Hayeun Jang on “Super cumulative OCP effect in Swedish”
Notification about the Alumni in Industry event:
The event has been moved to November 30th (it has originally been scheduled for November 2nd). It will still be held after colloquium reception, from 7pm to no later than 8:30pm in the linguistics department conference room. Here’s a reminder of the plan for this event:
The linguistics department will be hosting a professionalization event for graduate students to talk to recent graduates of the department who have secured jobs outside of academia. Topics of discussion include day-to-day job duties, necessary skills, how linguistic expertise is applied, and how non-academic positions are found. There will also be a Q&A session. Additional details about the event, including the list of participating graduates in industry, will be provided soon.
Don’t forget that we have put up collection boxes in the student’s lounge to gather donations for the Downtown Women’s Center! Clothing & Accessories (laundered, folded, and in good condition) are more than welcome, as well as donations of food and personal hygiene items.
We also have a box to collect commonly used items for recycling that are not recyclable by municipal programs so we can take those to Terracycle: any old Brita filters, used toothbrushes, cereal bar wrappers, snack bags and broken pens are welcome to this box!
