UBC to host Northwest Linguistics Conference in May

The Department of Linguistics is pleased to host the 37th annual Northwest Linguistics Conference (NWLC) from May 14-16, 2021. We are inviting graduate and undergraduate students to submit abstracts for 30 minute talks (20 minute presentation/10 minute discussion), or for presentation of a poster, in any area of theoretical or applied linguistics. The call for papers is here.

The NWLC is an annual conference, hosted on an alternating basis by Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, and University of Washington. The conference is an opportunity for students to present their research, and make connections with their peers and other researchers.

Invited speakers:

  • Dr. Miikka Silfverberg, UBC
  • Dr. Neda Todorović, UBC
  • Samuel Akinbo, UBC

This year we will have two special themed sessions:

  1. Linguistics and indigenous languages
  2. Computational linguistics
