Did you know that when Dr. Andrew Carnie isn’t studying linguistics or leading a team investigating the syntax, phonology and phonetics of Modern Scottish Gaelic, writing articles and books, or overseeing the Graduate College he is most likely off doing international folk dancing or square dancing?

That’s right! And now - back by popular demand -  he invites you to attend his event, Dancing with the Dean on the Green. This is a great opportunity to interact with Dean Carnie in a relaxed setting, learn fun dances, and meet other UA graduate students.
