Meeting Description:

We are happy to announce that we are preparing to hold MULS 2021 on April 17, 2021. We will host the symposium remotely over Zoom to conform with the COVID-19 expectations of your campuses and our own.

MULS is an annual event that is dedicated to promoting the study of linguistics by undergraduates in Minnesota and surrounding states by sharing exemplary undergraduate research and fostering a dialogue between students of linguistics and other language-related topics across various institutions.

Call for Papers:

If you are interested in being considered to present at the symposium, please fill out the form on our website ( The deadline for submission is March 17, 2021. We anticipate communicating plans for the schedule by April 5.

Submission Guidelines:
- Research from all subfields of linguistics, in both applied and theoretical work, are welcome. We also welcome research in progress.
- Each student may submit at most one singly authored abstract and one jointly authored abstract.
- The abstract should be no more than one page (1 inch margins, 11 or 12 point font), not including references. Examples should be embedded within the body of the abstract (as opposed to being listed at the end).
- Please make sure the abstract is in PDF format and that there is no identification of yourself in the abstract (anonymized submission). The review process is double blind.
- If your abstract reflects work that is part of a greater research project with a team or a professor, please be prepared to submit verification from the PI that they are aware you are submitting this work. If your abstract is accepted, we will let you know if we would like this verification.
- Abstracts that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered. Decisions will be announced in early April.
- If you would like guidance on how to structure a linguistics abstract, please see model abstracts provided by the LSA (
