We are building a global network of scholars, teachers, and learners, who work with community partners to translate knowledge into practical results.
Our three primary research themes (Language, Sustainability, and Transnationalism, which explores the ways in which language shapes and is shaped by interactions between individuals and communities; The Communicating Mind and Body, which explores the physical and neural foundations of language; and Evolving Language in an Information Economy, which explores language’s role in information and technology) and 16 sub-themes span the interdisciplinary field of language sciences, and cover key questions our members are working to answer.
We host and support research talks, film screenings, roundtables, workshops, and a graduate conference; provide cluster funding for collaborative activities (you can request funding here); and regularly share stories and updates about our members’ work.
Groups involved in language science research are distributed throughout UBC. Click here to view Research groups.
