Welcome to CuTLi2018!
The 2nd Part of the conference series Current Trends in Linguistics takes place at the University of Hamburg from March 23rd to 24th 2018.
We, Dan Li, Francesca Illiano, Kai Zhang, Melissa Preßler and Olha Shkvarylo, are M.A. students of the University of Hamburg, as well as members of the organizing committee under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Peter Siemund and his five PhD students – Richard Bonnie, Lijun Li, Kathrin Feindt, Eliane Lorenz and Sharareh Rahbari.
The aim of the gathering is to bring together the work of well-known researchers (external and internal) with that of local PhD and graduate students.
We would like to express our profoundest gratitude to Prof. Siemund for giving us the idea and the title of the workshop, his generous support as well as his inspiring guidance and encouragement throughout the organization. By hosting the workshop, we wish to create an inspiring atmosphere with room for fruitful discussions, valuable critique and stimulating conversations among senior and junior researchers. Please join us and take this opportunity to meet with colleagues from other universities, various linguistic backgrounds and who, just like you, are concerned with the issue of English as an Additional Language.
