Jenny Cheshire Lecture 2024 | Prof. Crispin Thurlow

When: Friday, May 31, 2024, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Where: To be confirmed, Mile End Campus


The Department of Linguistics welcomes Prof. Crispin Thurlow (University of Bern) for the next instalment of our Jenny Cheshire Lecture Series. 

The Jenny Cheshire Lecture series was founded in 2010 to mark the retirement of Professor Jenny Cheshire FBA. Jenny is a founding member of the QMUL Linguistics department and holds a unique place in the wider community. She has made and continues to make uniquely influential contributions in the areas of grammatical variation, especially syntax and discourse structures, language in education, with a focus on conversational narratives and spoken English, adolescent speech, and especially the identification and documentation of Multicultural London English. 

This year we welcome Prof. Crispin Thurlow for this public lecture, open to the wider Linguistics community. The lecture is a celebration not just of Jenny's unique place in our field, but also a friendly social gathering to mark the end of the academic year.
