Language shapes cultures, social interactions and human understanding of the world. Given the college’s diverse yet unifying interests, the 18th Graduate Student Conference of the College of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature (LLL) will focus on different aspects of language studies that help us appreciate how languages and literature transmit our rich histories to others, document and perpetuate knowledge in the world, and inform our future. Focusing on the integral role of language as facilitating intercultural communication, this year’s conference will highlight research and projects from graduate students in the College of LLL that explore current issues, methods, technologies and ideologies of language and community, that enable us to effectively communicate and convey meaning across cultural, social, and linguistic boundaries.

The conference seeks papers from graduate students that highlight how languages, literature, culture, and society shape who we are, how we interact with the world, and how we engage with the larger community. The conference also seeks to welcome new lines of research utilizing cutting-edge technology or methodology to answer longstanding questions in language studies. Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to any of the following:

▪   Interpretation and translation studies
▪   Intercultural studies
▪   Language documentation and conservation
▪   Technology use (e.g. computer-assisted language learning)
▪   Topics in linguistics
▪   Literature, literary studies, new media literacy, comparative literature
▪   Language pedagogy
▪   Language ideologies, policy, and planning
▪   Less commonly taught languages
▪   Creative writing
▪   Bilingual, immersion, and heritage language education
▪   Language acquisition (e.g. first and additional language, absence of an L1)
▪   Theories in language studies and analyses (e.g. code switching, pragmatics, etc.)
