The UC Davis Cluster on Language Research is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual UC Davis Symposium on Language Research. The purpose of this symposium is to showcase current investigations on language, and to cultivate a community of language researchers throughout the country. We welcome a wide array of topics across all languages and disciplines related to linguistics, as it is our goal to create an open and inclusive symposium to promote dialogue between all types of language research.

Eligibility: All graduate and undergraduate students, lecturers, postdoctoral and visiting scholars currently investigating language in some capacity are encouraged to submit their research, preliminary or otherwise.

The UC Davis Symposium has been increasingly growing since it started 5 years ago. Although it started as a local event, the presence of scholars coming from different locations and backgrounds has been increasing with every iteration of the symposium. It is our goal to keep widening the scope of our event.
