The CRLCC is proud to announce the 2016’s winner of the best student paper competition

Andrew Peters

MA in Linguistics

Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics


Every year the CRLCC holds a best student paper competition, aimed at recognizing student research excellence. The award is given to one undergraduate and one graduate paper written as part of a course at York University. The paper should be on a subject related to one of the three CRLCC research clusters:

– Language ecology and planning.

– Language contact, variation, and change.

– Translation and interpreting.

To be considered for the competition, papers should be nominated by a faculty member who will submit a letter of nomination. Nominees should fill out the contest submission form and submit it along with an electronic copy of the paper. All paper submissions will undergo a blind review by a selection committee.

The contest winner will receive a certificate of recognition and will be invited to present her/his paper at a CRLCC research event and/or have the paper published on the CRLCC website.
