Every year, the CLILLAC-ARP research team (Centre de Linguistique Inter-Langues, de Lexicologie, de Linguistique Anglaise et de Corpus & Atelier de Recherche sur la Parole) at the Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7 organizes a one-day conference showcasing the work of PhD students in all fields of linguistics. This year’s theme is 'Contacts— Between, Within, or Through Languages' at the Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7, March 28th, 2014

The goal of the DoSciLa conference is first and foremost to give PhD students in linguistics an opportunity to present their research in front of professors, teachers, and researchers, as well as professionals, students and anyone with an interest in linguistics. It allows them to give their work wider publicity and to receive feedback from specialists of their area of research. The conference also offers the doctoral students a chance to meet and share their experiences as young researchers.

For the fourth edition of DoSciLa, we have chosen to focus on Contacts—between, within, or through languages. This theme is meant to encourage an exploration of the idea of contact in its broadest sense, i.e. connections being established and severed, and bringing about exchanges and transformations. We invite participants to reflect upon questions of linguistic influence and adaptability, harmonies and agreements, contrasts and conflicts, in any form of spoken or written language, diachronically as well as synchronically.
