This year marks the 13th edition of the T.W.I.S.T. Conference and again it promises to be spectacular. This year’s theme is ‘Discover the World through Language’, about how studying language aids us in learning about people, culture, and history. We proudly present this year’s keynote speakers: Michäel Peyrot, Eugénie Stapert, Maaike van Naerssen, and Jenneke van der Wal. The conference will be on the 12th and 13th of April in the Lipsius building. For more information, please visit our Facebook page or immediately buy your tickets here.

The T.W.I.S.T. Conference is organized by T.W.I.S.T., the students’ society for Linguistics students at Leiden University. Each year, it provides a truly academic yet open and informal platform for undergraduate (BA), graduate (MA) and postgraduate (PhD) students to present their original research to fellow students and researchers from all over The Netherlands (and abroad!). With 4 keynote lectures and many more student talks, we strive to bring together students interested in language from the most diverse research fields and subdisciplines.
