The Linguistics Society

St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous)

The Linguistics Society is intended primarily as a co-curricular forum for students of MA English, CPE, and EJP, but its activities are open to all those interested in language studies. We hope thus to build a beyond-the-syllabus competence and engagement with ideas and debates in the field, while also promoting interest in research at the boundaries of the discipline.

The aims and objectives of the association are as follows:

  1. To promote awareness of and interest in Linguistics as a field of work
  2. To promote an engagement with matters of public concern such as language policy, language diversity and multilingual abilities.
  3. To find a participatory ethic by which the above aims can be realised on campus.
