The first announcements for this year’s EGG School have been posted!
It will take place in Ceske Budejovice, in the Czech Republic, 25 July – 5 August 2011.
The teacher line-up for this year so far includes, among other people, two CASTL alumni, Peter Jurgec and Sylvia Blaho, which makes this school even more special, since I know from personal experience that they are both awesome phonologists and even more awesome people 🙂
For those of you who don’t know, the EGG (Central and Eastern European Summer School in Generative Grammar) focuses on generative grammar. The teachers are either senior established figures in the field or young promising researchers at the forefront of today’s research, and they are all teaching for free! The school is wonderfully stimulating and fun, both during and outside of classes and everybody is welcome to attend the school regardless of their geographical location or level of knowledge. The school costs only 100 euros, which includes accommodation for the duration of the school!
For me personally, as well as for many others, this school has been an inspiration and a decisive factor in life, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in linguistics 🙂
