Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Conference at the UGA is an annual grad student run conference, and the Linguistics Society at UGA is proud to bring you its 7th installment. The central focus of this year’s conference is ''Language and Connection.'' We encourage presentations with creative interpretations of the central theme and that span academic fields, as well as connect academia with the larger community. We are proud to welcome our plenary speakers, Dr. Lelia Glass of Georgia Tech and Dr. Robin Dodsworth of North Carolina State University, who will share their insight on topics related to this theme.

This year's conference will be simulcast on Gather, so we are happy to accept abstract submissions for virtual presentations and attendees from anywhere in the world.
