The Arqus International Forum on Romance Studies (AIFRS) organizes the second edition of the Colloquium on Romance Linguistics.

The Colloquium on Romance Linguistics is a series of online presentations held by linguists from the Arqus universities. It is a place of scientific exchange on the current trends in Romance linguistics, which enables scholars to present their research to colleagues within the Arqus Alliance and beyond, and makes this research known in a wider international context. Furthermore, the Colloquium facilitates the academic discussion with international colleagues, supplying scholars with new scientific input and creating the basis for future cooperation.

During the winter term 2021/22 (November, December, January, February), the second edition of the colloquium is again hosted by the University of Graz. It will usually take place on Thursday (18:00 - 19:30 CET).
