Preparing Your Talk

Invited Colloquium Speakers typically prepare a formal 45-50-minute talk after which we hold a question-answer session with the audience. Symposium and Workshop Speakers will be contacted individually regarding timing and format of presentation. Please contact kmontiegel [at] with questions or concerns.

The UCLA Center for Language, Interaction and Culture (CLIC) is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to the study of spontaneous social interaction in diverse cultures and contexts. The CLIC community is made up of graduate students, faculty, and visiting researchers from a wide range of academic backgrounds, including anthropology, sociology, communication studies, language studies, and linguistics. CLIC Colloquiums cover a variety of methodologies for understanding the multiple uses of language in everyday life.

Speakers are invited to present original video data extracts and provide written transcripts for the audience, where relevant. Please contact the CLIC Coordinator at kmontiegel [at] at least 48 hours prior to your presentation to request copy or print jobs.
