Preparing an Abstract

This page is not applicable to speakers invited to participate in Conference, Symposium, or Workshop events.

If you are an invited CLIC Colloquium Speaker, we will begin advertising your event one month prior to your talk. At that time, the CLIC Coordinator will prompt you to send a title and brief 3-6 sentence abstract. Please contact cbergen [at] with any questions.

Your title and abstract will be distributed to faculty and graduate students in the departments of Anthropology, Sociology, Communication Studies, Linguistics, and Asian Languages and Cultures, among others. Please be sure that your abstract is broadly understandable and relevant to a wide range of social interaction scholars.

A few examples of CLIC Colloquium advertisements are provided below.
