Meeting Description:

ILLS is an annual graduate student-run conference aimed primarily at providing graduate and advanced undergraduate students a friendly venue in which to present and discuss research on any topic related to language and linguistics. The conference theme for ILLS 13 is “Minoritized Language in a Globalized World.”

ILLS is a general linguistics conference open to any and all submissions relating to language and linguistics. The conference theme for ILLS 13 is “Minoritized Language in a Globalized World.” Submissions related to this theme are especially encouraged, though submissions are
not limited to this theme. We primarily encourage submissions from graduate and undergraduate students. We hold that an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and a collaborative approach to language from a multitude of avenues is fundamental to the advancement of language research and the subsequent understanding of our world, cultures, and societies.

Additionally, the Sociolinguistics Symposium (SOSY) will again be held in conjunction with ILLS this year. SOSY will take place in parallel with ILLS February 26-27, 2021.
