We will be concluding the Fall semester of the SLAT Colloquium on Friday, Dec. 6 with a special event featuring guest speaker Dr. Angel Angelov from the St. Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia, Bulgaria. Prof. Angelov is currently a Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Washington and will give a talk at the SLAT colloquium on the topic of ecolinguistics. Prof. Angelov's talk is entitled "Ecology of Language: A South-East European Point of View". This proves to be an interesting talk.
