So What? Making Research Relevant for the Real World:
2020 SLA Graduate Student Symposium

April 24–25, 2020
University of Minnesota

In today’s multilingual world, the increasing impact of globalization, technologization and mobility on language learning and teaching foregrounds the need for second language scholarship to speak to and involve both communities and stakeholders, including learners, teachers, parents, administrators, educational organizations and business leaders. The theme of this year’s conference draws upon publicly- and community-engaged scholarship and centers around the question “Who is research for?”

This free conference is open to graduate students from all over the United States and internationally as well as advanced undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing further studies or a career in second language acquisition or education. 

Note: The SLA Graduate Student Symposium has been cancelled due to concerns related to COVID-19. The organizers are planning to offer a future event in Fall 2020. See more information on the Main Conference Page.
