While April closes out the spring semester, there are some linguistics events to look forward to in the summer!
The North West Linguistic Conference (NWLC) is being held at UBC on May 5-7th. This conference is hosted by graduate students discussing all areas of linguistics, enabling them to share their work with local and international colleagues. Our very own graduate student, Danica Reid, will be presenting at this conference. Registration is now open at https://blogs.ubc.ca/nwlc33/.
Also being held at UBC is NoWPhon. This conference focuses specifically on phonetics and phonology and provides a space for researchers in the region to connect and share the work they are doing in these two interrelated areas. NoWPhon will be held during the May long weekend from May 19th-21st. More information and registration is available at https://blogs.ubc.ca/nowphon2017/.
If you want to learn about some of the new and exciting research being done in linguistics be sure to mark these dates on your calendar!
