Meeting Description:

The 3rd Annual Minnesota Undergraduate Linguistics Symposium will be hosted by Carleton College on April 11, 2015. Carleton is in Northfield, MN, about 40 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

The Minnesota Undergraduate Linguistics Symposium is dedicated to promoting the study of linguistics by undergraduates in Minnesota and surrounding states by sharing exemplary undergraduate research and fostering a dialogue between students of linguistics and other language-related topics across various institutions.

Keynote Address:

The keynote speaker for MULS 2015 will be Dr. Colleen Fitzgerald from University of Texas at Arlington, whose research focuses primarily on endangered languages in the Southwestern US. Accordingly, the theme of MULS 2015 is endangered languages, but we will gladly accept papers and presentations on any language-related topic.

There is no fee to attend the 2015 Minnesota Undergraduate Linguistics Conference. If you plan to attend, regardless of whether you submit an abstract, please register on the MULS website by Wednesday, April 8 at 11:59PM:

Call for Papers:

We seek a diverse array of posters and presentations that will encourage undergraduates to pursue their own research, so all topics are welcome.

This Linguistics Symposium is looking for undergraduates to present their research as presentations or posters. We are looking for diverse topics, from cognitive linguistics to cultural, to neuroscience, to computational and everything in between. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance within one week following the submission deadline.

Your abstract should be a 250-500 word summary of the research that you would like to present. Please visit our website for more information on registration and abstract submission:
