Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

The 2011 Linguistic Institute will take place July 7-August 2 on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder, with major sponsorship by the Linguistic Society of America and the University of Colorado Department of Linguistics, Office of Continuing Education and Professional Studies, College of Arts and Sciences and Graduate School. Membership dues in the Linguistic Society of America help underwrite the planning and implementation of the Institute, while tax-deductible contributions may be directed to funds supporting student fellowships or named professorships.

The theme of the 2011 Linguistic Institute is Language in the World. The Institute focus will be on interdisciplinary, empirically based approaches to language that acknowledge its dual nature, as both a real-time interactional strategy and a product of interaction. Institute students and affiliates will select from a slate of 80 courses on a wide variety of topics, including syntactic, semantic and morphological theory, lexicography, dialectology, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics, sociolinguistics and fieldwork/language documentation. See:

https://verbs.colorado.edu/LSA2011/courses.html for course listings.

Over 100 international scholars will teach at the 2011 Institute, including three Institute Professors. See:

https://verbs.colorado.edu/LSA2011/faculty-listings.html for faculty biographies.

Early registration for students and affiliates is tentatively scheduled for March 1-May 1. A future communication will describe the procedure for online enrollment.

A limited number of fellowships, including several named fellowships, are available on a competitive basis to students attending the 2011 Linguistic Institute. Fellowships generally cover only the cost of tuition to attend the Institute (although the Bloch and McCawley fellowships provide some additional support); fellowships do not cover living expenses, travel expenses to and from the Institute, or visa expenses for international students. To be awarded a fellowship, students must enter the fellowship competition, which is administered by the Linguistic Society of America (LSA); access to the online fellowship application will be through LSA member login. Students must be members of the LSA to apply for fellowships; non-members may apply for membership at the time of application. A link to the online fellowship application will be made available on the Institute website, as well as the LSA website, once the competition opens.

The fellowship competition will open in the first half of January 2011 and close the first week of February. A sample of the fellowship application will be posted in December. We anticipate that the LSA will inform each applicant of the status of his or her fellowship application in the second half of March 2011, in time for awardees to meet the Institute's May 1 early registration deadline.
