No other species but humans has language.

It has enabled us to create complex civilisations, technology, and culture, and affects diverse aspects of our lives. Studying language involves many diverse perspectives, backgrounds, toolkits, and approaches.  On May 13th, 2019, UBC Language Sciences will host its first Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Research Day to showcase the work of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in these diverse fields.

The theme for this Research Day is Language Lenses: Mind, Body, Society, Technology, reflecting these diverse perspectives and approaches to language research. 

From Indigenous language revitalization, to children’s language acquisition, to modelling the vocal tract with ultrasound, to understanding multilingualism, language sciences research is diverse, cross-disciplinary, and far-reaching. UBC Language Sciences is a community of scholars who research, teach, and learn about the science of language across disciplines.  This conference will help attendees appreciate the many lenses of language research.
