The Santiago-Leuven-Edinburgh Seminar on Grammatical Variation and Change in English will be held at KU Leuven (Flanders) on 4-5 April 2017. It is organised by the research project Gradience and constructionalization in linguistic variation involving the Universities of Santiago de Compostela, Leuven and Edinburgh. The project is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (grant FFI2014-52188-P; PI: Teresa Fanego).

The seminar is a two-day event, intended specifically for postgraduate students. It is a combination of lectures given by well-established researchers in the field, and workshop sessions where postgrads are given the opportunity to present their own research and receive feedback.

The list of presenters can be found here. It includes students from the Universities of Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bern, UCM, Edinburgh, Freiburg, Leiden, Munich, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo. The ten postgrads from the latter two universities are currently enrolled in our MA and PhD programmes (iMAES and IDAES, respectively).
