The Queen’s Interdisciplinary Linguistics Group (ILinG) is a joint initiative of doctoral students in the Schools of Education, English, and Modern Languages. Although it is based at Queen’s University Belfast, the group welcomes and encourages membership from elsewhere.
ILinG aims to facilitate continuous academic exchange among all language-related researchers, postgraduates and undergraduates at Queen’s throughout the academic year, starting with the 1st ILinC conference on 14-15 October 2011.

The year-long programme for the group is intended to include:
- annual Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference (ILinC);
- language-related research seminars;
- informal round-table discussions or debates;
- workshops on topics of interest;
- reading groups;
- social events for networking;
- screening of subject-related films;
- an online discussion group and/or internet forum.
