Associate Lecturer post for Julia

Posted on September 3, 2015 by

LEL PhD student Julia Kolkmann has landed a position as Associate Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of York!

Starting later this month, Julia will be teaching Pragmatics, Syntactic Theory and Semantics as well as continuing with her Widening Participation work, as previously reported by Manchet.

Julia, who first arrived in Manchester as an exchange student from the University of Paderborn in 2009, has become a well-loved member of the department for her innumerable contributions to practically everything the department does as well as for her honesty, insight and kind-heartedness. Her research has looked at possession and the English genitive alternation from a wide variety of angles, from the syntactic to the semantic to the pragmatic – in the process bringing experimental pragmatics and Relevance Theory to Manchester. Her ability to do a good job of teaching pretty much anything she puts her mind to will no doubt stand her in good stead at York – but Manchester will be very sorry to see her go!

Manchet wishes Julia all the best for her future endeavours.
