The purpose of the Language Variation and Change (LVC) reading group is to bring together postgraduates and academics from all three White Rose institutions to discuss current sociolinguistic research related to language variation and change. The aim of the group is to encourage cross-institutional collaboration in sociolinguistic research and to provide a space for linguists to meet up and discuss ideas with one another. Attendees of the group will be able to keep up to date with sociolinguistic research which is being carried out in fields beyond the scope of their specific PhD research, which will lead to an improved knowledge of the subject overall and could lead to new and exciting collaborations.
