EGG Summer School


I am one of the organizers of the Eastern Generative Grammar (EGG) Summer School: a linguistics summer school that takes place for 2 weeks every July/August in different Eastern European countries. Read more about us here.

If you're a student, researcher, or just someone interested in linguistics, consider attending. It's a lot of fun, really cheap, and we offer a good mix of introductory and advanced courses taught by excellent linguists, both junior and senior.

The next EGG school will be in Brno, Czech Republic from July 27 - August 7, 2015. All information, including about our excellent line-up of teachers and classes, can be found here
