Welcome

RULing IX, April 11-12, 2014

RULing is an annual student-run linguistics conference featuring presentations from students and alumni from the Department of Linguistics of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

This mini-conference is a forum for graduate students to present ongoing research to the Rutgers community. At the same time, it provides the researchers with an opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions from their colleagues in a relaxed and friendly environment. Presenters are particularly encouraged to present projects in non-final stages of development, as one of the points of RULing is to create a safe zone for us to present any new ideas, without the fear and trepidation that comes with presenting publicly in front of linguists from other universities. A RULing talk can be about one of your final course papers, a part of your qualifying paper, a chapter from the dissertation, a talk you want to practice before going to a big conference, or just some new research direction you'd like to get feedback on.

The Rutgers Working Papers in Linguistics volume features papers from this conference.
