The Randolph Quirk Fellowship 2023

We are delighted to be joined by the 2023 Fellow, Professor Michael Wagner (McGill University).


Thanks to a generous donation from The Lord Quirk (CBE, FBA, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of London), the Randolph Quirk Fellowship at Queen Mary University of London is awarded to one researcher each year. The Fellow is invited to visit the Linguistics Department, deliver a mini-course, and give a public lecture in their field of expertise.

This year, we are delighted to announce that the 2023 Randolph Quirk Fellow will be Professor Michael Wagner (McGill University).
