We would like to thank our sponsors, whose financial support allows us to successfully organize the 2020 T.W.I.S.T. Conference.

Leids Universitair Fonds

The Leiden University Fund (LUF), supported by many committed alumni, helps ambitions flourish. With this support, researchers in Leiden are able to work on innovative projects, the scientists of the future can climb the first rung of the academic ladder and students have the chance to organise special activities.

Leiden University Centre for Linguistics

The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) was established on 1 September 2005. Since then, all linguists of the Faculty of Humanities of Leiden University have been united in one institute. LUCL organizes many conferences and workshops in all areas of linguistics, and hosts a linguistics graduate school and several masters in linguistics.

Faculty of Humanities

The Faculty of Humanities offers an inspiring and international work environment with room for diversity and reform for employees and students from the Netherlands and abroad.

Our global expertise, international focus and synergy of scientific approaches form windows to the world, opening up the many perspectives of a globalising world. In a century of globalisation, large-scale levels of migration, intense and ever faster communication, cultural transformations and the politicisation of culture and the rise of new superpowers, the work and knowledge of the faculty’s staff is of vital importance to our society, both inside and outside of the Netherlands. It is precisely in the 21st century that our faculty consciously stands at the heart of that society.
