The Penn Linguistics Colloquium (PLC) is an annual conference in linguistics run by our graduate students held here at the university.

The Linguistics Speaker Series is a student-run series of invited talks, usually every other week throughout the semester. We invite students and professors from various subfields and various universities to speak to the Penn Linguistics community about their current research.

The Penn Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) are published by the Penn Linguistics Club, the organization of linguistics graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania. The series includes papers from conferences, including the Penn Linguistics Colloquium and New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV), as well as volumes of working papers Fby linguists affiliated with the Penn Linguistics Department.
