Hi everyone,

We’re writing to invite you to participate in our research project “Digital conferencing in times of crisis”. This project has two co-investigators: Brook Bolander from Monash University and Julia Fine from UC Santa Barbara. This is a topic we’ve been thinking about for some time now, and one which is growing more important by the day. The main question we’re exploring in this project is how digital conferencing can be made as equitable and sustainable as possible for a large and diverse community of linguists. Participating in the project means answering a series of questions via the polling software PollEverywhere. The link can be found here:

The poll consists of 21 questions and is anonymous. Questions are not obligatory, so you can skip questions you do not wish to answer. The poll will stay active for two weeks (from Monday 6 July to Monday 20 July). By answering questions in the poll, you are implying your consent for us to use your responses in our research outputs. After the poll is closed, we will analyse the findings and speak and write about them at conferences and in journal articles. We’d love to share our findings with you, so if you’d like to hear more, please email and/or Similarly, if you have questions about our research, do feel free to get in touch!

This project has been approved by the Human Ethics Committee at Monash University (ID = 25082. Here are the contact details of the Human Ethics Office should you wish to raise concerns about the study. Email: Tel: +61 3 990 52052.
