Meeting Description:

LSRL is the premier conference on Romance Linguistics, distinguished by its selectivity and its focus on high quality theoretical and empirical studies of all varieties of Romance languages and their Latin origins. In celebrating its 50th anniversary, we envision a conference that branches out from the strong, theoretical roots of LSRL and lays the groundwork for research programs and data sharing practices that continue to move the field forward. The program will feature a retrospective address by syntactician Christina Tortora, keynote lectures by sociophonetician Zsuzsanna Fagyal, computer scientist Thamar Solorio, documentary and historical linguist Patience Epps, and psycholinguist and L2 specialist David Birdsong; a data science workshop led by Jacqueline Serigos; and vetted oral and poster presentations.
