One of PROLang’s main goals is to provide a forum for postgraduates, who are working on research topics involving language and society, in the broadest sense, to present and receive feedback on their work in progress. Following on from last year's event looking at the Polish language, the theme of this seminar will be the study of Romania and Moldova. The event will begin with opening remarks from Professor Emeritus, Dennis Deletant. We look forward to you joining us here at SSEES, to participate in what is sure to be a series of fascinating and intellectually stimulating discussions.
