UUSCIL Department of Linguistics

UUSCIL 2021

Students in the Department of Linguistics have been organizing a University of Utah Student Conference in Linguistics since 2001. The conference is intended to celebrate the wide breadth of issues taken up in theoretical and applied linguistics, including interdisciplinary approaches.

We are pleased to announce that the University of Utah Student Conference in Linguistics (UUSCIL) 2021 will take place virtually on Friday, April 9th, 2021, on our Department Canvas page.  As usual, the conference provides an opportunity for our students to present their research in a scholarly setting to students, faculty, and other members of our Linguistics community.  All presentations will be given as poster presentations.
