We see language sciences as a broad and inclusive field, where interdisciplinary research and learning is the name of the game.

We have members from Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science, History, Philosophy, and Electrical and Computer Engineering; from Science, Education, Medicine, Arts, and Sauder; and from UBC, UBC Okanagan, Simon Fraser University, the University of Saskatchewan, Concordia University, Université Paris Descartes and more.

Our members are Canada Research Chairs, graduate students, professors, alumni, Distinguished University Scholars, instructors, postdoctoral fellows, and Killam Research and Teaching award winners.

We currently have more than 200 faculty, student, and affiliate members. If you are interested in joining, we’d love to hear from you!

Want to join?

Membership in the Institute is as involved as you would like it to be.

When you become a member of Language Sciences, you are invited to include an optional personal profile which can be viewed by other members and by the general public.    You are welcome to add other information, including a photo, to your profile – these will also be viewable by other members and the general public.  It is solely your choice whether or not to add or delete other information to your profile.

We also invite members to join the mailing and newsletter lists to receive regular updates about relevant news, events, opportunities, and Initiative activities.

We want you to own the Initiative: attend or present at events, create partnerships (and let us know about them!), feature in articles (and suggest new stories), and help shape how it should develop.

To become a member, or find out more information, please email us at

In Memory

Language Sciences maintains an In Memory page, to remember the work and life of members who have died.
