Join UBC Language Sciences for the third Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Research Day on Friday, November 19th, 2021, showcasing the work of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the diverse fields of language sciences.

The theme for this Research Day is 'Language Sciences Research in a time of COVID', investigating how language research changed, adapted, and adjusted during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Keynote speakers include LLED doctoral student Asma Afreen (Learning and Teaching Bangla Online During COVID-19).

This year the Research Day will be held online.

From natural language processing, to Indigenous language revitalization, to sentiment analysis of social media, to children’s language acquisition, to modelling the vocal tract with ultrasound, language sciences research is diverse, cross-disciplinary, and far-reaching. 

This conference will introduce attendees to the many diverse areas of language sciences research, as well as other scholars working in different disciplines, and potentially parallel research.
