The association will elect a new board on 7 May 2021! To keep our association young, fresh and full of new ideas, we would love to see lots of new faces on the board. There are different positions to be filled, suitable for different interests: chair, treasurer, secretary, IT, or advertising and internationalization. If you'd be interested in joining the new board, please get in touch with the current board via email to: vorstand [at] junge-sprachwissenschaft [dot] de
The blog "StuBS" is a new project and just starting out. This early stage is a highly interesting phase which requires a lot of helping hands. Everyone who is interested in introducing linguistics topics to a broader audience is more than welcome to join in. Blog posts present us with the opportunity to bring scientific facts to people's attention in the form of an easy read. They are, thus, somewhat different from the usual term paper or scientific publication. If you feel inspired to explore this type of writing, have a look at blog.junge-sprachwissenschaft.de!

Language Didacts and (Future) Teachers
We would like to bring more linguistics into schools. If you yourself are studying to become a teacher or are in any other way linked to working with students or schools, this may be just the task for you. As part of this you may get involved in politics to support the role of linguistics in teaching currucula or develop your own teaching schemes for linguistics topics. A collection of teaching material, including entire teaching sessions, may be foudn here: hier If this is the team for you, feel free to email: vorstand [at] junge-sprachwissenschaft [dot] de.
Experts for Modern Research Methods
We are always looking for students who bring innovative approaches to their research. If you know your way around something that is not widely used and taught in linguistics and that would be a useful addition to traditional methods - especially across fields and disciplines - please get in touch! We would love to contribute to a modernisation of research and teaching through methods competences, especially in the digital humanities. Students for students, of course: vorstand [at] junge-sprachwissenschaft [dot] de
