Talk Series: Diversity in Linguistics

The talk series Diversity in Linguistics features linguists from diverse social and linguistic backgrounds. As an association, we wish to promote diverse perspectives in and on linguistics by researchers working in linguistic subfields less often represented in the German linguistic landscape.
