Doing a PhD on L2 speech: Tips for a smoother entry into academia
Dr Celia Gorba lectures in the English Department at the UAB in the field of phonetics and phonology. She is part of a research group at the same institution, in which she conducts research on the acquisition of second-language speech. This presentation will go over the process of completing a PhD in linguistics by referring to the speaker’s own personal experience and work. It provides a first-hand account of experience in the initial stages of an academic career and attempts to shed light on some of the doubts and concerns that a prospective PhD student may have.
