English Language and Linguistics - Our CASEs

Welcome to Chemnitz Africa/Asia Symposium on English (CASE)

In this postgraduate research symposium, PhD candidates present their current research projects in 10-20-minute papers. This serves as a starting point for internal scholarly discussions of concrete research projects, problems and solutions. Together with our international visiting scholars, we provide a forum to help our PhD candidates with writing their doctoral dissertations or pursuing their scholarly presentations and publications.
