Call Deadline: Nov. 7, 2021.

TU+ is an annual workshop bringing together all aspects of linguistic research on Turkic languages, as well as languages in contact with Turkic and those spoken in geographic regions where Turkic languages are spoken. TU+ serves as a venue for work on a wide variety of languages from well-studied varieties to underrepresented and under-studied languages without a formal venue of their own. TU+ is meant to provide an environment for collaboration, and a space to share ideas big or small.

Because of the continued unpredictability and serious nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the TU+7 organizers have determined that hosting the conference virtually on a digital video platform in 2022 remains the safest and most accessible option. We hope that this continues the successes of the last iteration of this workshop in removing barriers for presenters and allowing for wider community participation. We remain dedicated to finding creative ways to foster the sense of community and connectedness that TU+ is known for.

Invited Speakers:

  • Martina Gracanin-Yuksek (Middle East Technical University, Ankara)
  • Kadir Gökgöz (Boğaziçi University, İstanbul)
