Michigan was very well represented at the NWAV conference that took place in Chicago earlier in October. There were no fewer than five presentations by faculty, current students, and alums of our graduate program. Our department has been, and continues to be, a leader in research on the various ways in which language is embedded in the social structure of human existence. We list the presentations that were given below. Clicking on any of the presentation titles will take you to an abstract for the particular presentation.
