History

Although the SynMorPhoSe Linguistics Lab has existed informally since 2010, it was officially established in 2015 (Greek Government Gazette 1057/5-6-2015). It also has its own page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SynMorPhoSe).

Currently, it includes 6 academic staff members, 2 specialized laboratory and teaching staff members, 5 Phd holders, 7 Phd students, 3 post-doctoral researchers and several external collaborators.

The Lab provides support for the linguistic courses of the Department of Greek Philology undergraduate studies programme as well as the interinstitutional programme for Specialization in IT and Special Education: Psychopedagogy of Inclusion.

Furthermore, it organizes seminars and lectures by Greek and foreign linguists, for the purpose of keeping its Phd candidates and undergraduate students up to date with current developments in the field, international conferences (Annex 9.6.1), as well as various linguistic events (reading motivations, creative writing, book reviews, etc.), especially in the field of applied linguistics (Annex 9.6.2) and since 2017, it has organized the "Poetry Equinox" event.

It also provides support to the department's Student Traineeship Programme. In that context, it has accepted a considerable number of students, training them at collecting and processing linguistic data that could be potentially presented in a conference.

From 2010 to 2017, it carried out the analyses of the teaching staff evaluation questionnaires.

Recently, it has concluded cooperation protocols with the NE Mediterranean Linguistics Lab of the Department of Mediterranean Studies of the University of the Aegean, as well as with the Centre of Byzantine, Modern Greek and Cypriot Studies of Granada.
