In case you’re in the area, or still want to do something right after the new year begins, consider making last-minute plans to go to the LSA Meeting! It’s a fun, fairly relaxed conference that encourages interactions between faculty, grad students, and anyone interested in linguistics. Although the talks and poster sessions are geared toward professional linguists, it’s also a great opportunity to meet peers and challenge yourself intellectually. There is a student mixer and some special events geared toward grads and undergrads. It might be intimidating to go to a huge conference as an undergrad, but I can tell you from experience that it’s worth it. In my first few years attending, I made many friends and contacts who I look forward to seeing every year (or more often!). Not only that, but the networking opportunities are phenomenal.
Even if you can’t make it this year, keep an eye out on the LSA webpage for other opportunities — it’s a great resource!
In case I have any followers interesting and of the right age :D
I’ll just sit here reading articles on Wikipedia and ling books.
Sigh I still want to go so badly. But I don’t think it’s happening =(
