CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: “Silver Lining” Stories

The theme for this year’s Fund Drive is Silver Linings. 2020 was marked by numerous tragedies, the most far-reaching of them being the global pandemic; however, in the midst of these difficult circumstances, human ingenuity, courage, and compassion shone through, including in our field of linguistics. We’d love to hear from you, our subscribers, about a Silver Lining you’ve experienced in the past year. This could be a way that you continued research despite restrictions on movement/travel, or a method that you found particularly effective for making Zoom classes/meetings more bearable, or perhaps a way that your community banded together to meet each others’ needs. The possibilities are endless!

If you have such a story, please share it with us by sending it to With your permission, we would love to share it with the rest of the subscribing community as a way to inspire and encourage one another.

We at LINGUIST List were certainly inspired by the number of creative solutions we saw come through the mailing list, from online conferences to remote jobs. We are proud to have made it through about 18 months of pandemic conditions while continuing to serve you, our subscribers! We would love to be able to continue connecting and enabling the linguistics community for many years to come, so if you are able, please consider contributing to this year’s Fund Drive!
