Meeting Description:

The 25th Workshop on Structure and Constituency in Languages of the Americas (WSCLA 25) is being hosted by Sogang University and will take place online on May 28-30, 2021.

The Workshop on Structure and Constituency in Languages of the Americas (WSCLA) is an annual linguistics conference, which started in 1995. The central objective of WSCLA is to bring together linguists who are engaged in research on the formal study of the indigenous languages of the Americas in order to exchange ideas across theories, language families, generations of scholars, and across the academic and non-academic communities who are involved in language maintenance and revitalization.

Invited speakers:
- Emily Hanink (University of Manchester)
- Annauk Olin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
- Guillaume Thomas (University of Toronto)
- Hiroto Uchihara (National Autonomous University of Mexico)
- Natalie Weber (Yale University)
