KAT Blad is the linguistics and sign language linguistics magazine at the University of Amsterdam. First published in January 1970, we’ve produced 115 issues covering developments in the field, language communities, research at the university by students and staff, and much more! As a student-run magazine, we aim to empower our peers and to create opportunities for them to share their passion for linguistics.
The new board consists of third-year BA Linguistics students Linn Berkvens and Zoe Jensen, who are the co-editors in chief. They play a large role in organising the magazine and manage a lot of the important and behind-the-scenes admin work. In order to better support our website and create a more engaging project, second-year students Sayuri Deokar and Sanne van den Biggelaar are our media directors. They will help add another dimension to KAT Blad, by working on the blogs and maintaining the website.
