Wow. I now have one conference presentation per month, since January. I gave a talk in Portland in January, I had a poster presentation in Tübingen in February, I have another poster presentation in New York City this coming March, and now there is a talk in Bloomington in April. I have four new lines in my growing CV.
Perhaps the good thing with this one is that I am not going. My co-author (who is the first author) will be the one going and presenting this talk. We collaborated on a project about historical sound change, and given the topic, it is not my main focus. Really, when was the last time I did research on sound?
However, it has an experimental component, so the neat thing we did was that we collaborated in this small project, with me as the one in-charge with experimental design, and my collaborator as the one in charge of the theory. I really do not know much about sound, but I know how to design a neat experiment testing hypotheses about sound.
I guess the reason why I collaborate with diverse people is to show that I can be an experimentalist, even outside my own field of interest. I am interested mostly in discourse, but I have done experiments outside that domain for a bit now.
So yeah, I now have proof that I have done work on something about sound. Totally unexpected, but hey, I enjoyed it.
