LSA Summer Institute in 2019

The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) presents its Summer Institutes biennially, in odd-numbered years.

The UC Davis Department of Linguistics is honored to host the Linguistic Society of America’s prestigious Summer Institute in July 2019. The LSA conceived its Summer Institute program as a forum for “advanced training in linguistics that is not readily available through the regular course offerings of any single academic institution.” The LSA regards the Linguistic Institute as perhaps its most important scholarly activity. 

Summer Institute programs consist of 75 to 100 courses, workshops, lectures and related special events, and typically attract participation of 400 to 600 students and scholars from throughout the world.

Designation of the UC Davis Department of Linguistics as a host institution for the Summer Institute constitutes international recognition of the eminence of our program and the contributions of our faculty and alumni to the field of linguistics
