LAEL Society Guest Lecture by Professor Geoffrey Leech

Date: 9 February 2012 Time: 6.30 pm

Venue: Cavendish LT, Faraday Building

On Thursday 9th February the LAEL Society is bringing you a special lecture entitled "Linguistics and Lancaster: looking back over 40 years" from Professor Geoffrey Leech. It's a 6.30pm start, in Cavendish LT in the Faraday Building. Not to be missed! A short abstract from Prof. Leech is as follows:

"The seeds of Linguistics were sown in 1964 when Lancaster University began, but the Linguistics Department (originally the LAMEL Department) didn't properly begin until 1974. How was the Department conceived, and how was it born? How did it grow from small beginnings to being ranked as the largest and best Linguistics and English Language department in the country? Which were the good times and which the tough times? How did major research and teaching strengths develop? These and other questions will be answered (in a personal and no doubt biased way) by the Department's first HoD, who has survived more than 40 years at Bailrigg."
