Description

On Friday, 11 November 2022, Veterans Day, our DEALL graduate student in Chinese Linguistics, Paul D. Cockrum, flew to Austin to give a lecture at the University of Texas at Austin's Center for Taiwan Studies. His talk on "Variation in Written Southern Min: Taiwan Through the Three Camps Perspective," based on his M.A. thesis in DEALL this past spring, was on invitation from his alma mater's Department of Asian Studies. Despite the lecture having been scheduled on a holiday, and on a rainy Friday afternoon to boot, it was well attended, with some 30 or more undergraduate students, graduate students and post-docs listening attentively and participating actively during the Q&A period and more informally afterwards. The lecture was preceded by a short reception and followed by a catered dinner. Congratulations, Paul!
