Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Connecticut celebrates fifty years with two days of talks.

We are writing to invite you to celebrate with us fifty years of linguistics at the University of Connecticut. Founded in 1967 with Arthur Abramson as its chair, the Department of Linguistics at UConn has contributed many fundamental insights to the theoretical and experimental study of language. The department has a proud tradition of exceptional scholarship and a deep commitment to graduate education. Students of the program have now successfully defended over 150 dissertations and gone on to many prominent positions in the field.

We are writing to you as Ph.D. alumni of the department to ask you to join us in celebration of these achievements on September 7-8, 2018 at the University of Connecticut at Storrs. We are planning a slate of events including talks, discussions, poster sessions and a dinner reception. We would like to take the opportunity of this reunion to reflect on the scientific discoveries made at UConn over these 50 years, to hear about what our alumni are working on, and to show everyone what the department is now.
