Meeting Description:

The Graduate Student Network of the Language, Communication and Culture signature research area at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, is pleased to announce its first annual Graduate Students in Language, Communication and Culture Conference.

Our goal is to bring together graduate students from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds doing research with a focus on language, communication, and culture, and to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange.

There is no cost to register or attend.

In order to keep the conference accessible for graduate students, and to adapt to current pandemic practices, it will be hosted online via Zoom and Gather.Town.

Language Considerations:
As a Canadian university, we recognize that French and English are our institutional languages, and the importance of Indigenous languages spoken across Canada. Our international graduate student conference welcomes contributions on all languages and/or cultures. The working language of our conference and the language for all contributions is English. Yet, we strongly encourage the participation of speakers of languages other than English. Depending on the number and type of submissions we receive, we may offer the opportunity to present in other languages.

L'Université de l’Alberta étant implantée au Canada, nous reconnaissons le statut officiel du français et de l’anglais ainsi que l’importance de toutes les langues autochtones parlées au Canada. Notre conférence internationale d’étudiants en cycles supérieurs est ouverte à toutes présentations portant sur des langues / cultures du monde entier. La langue de travail de la conférence et celle des présentations est l’anglais. Cependant, il est entendu que la participation de locuteurs non natifs de l’anglais est fortement encouragée. En fonction du nombre et type de propositions que nous recevons, nous pourrions organiser des sessions dans d’autres langues.
