In February 2017, the LSA launched a new feature, “This (time) in Linguistics History” to be published on a periodic basis via the LSA website. We invited LSA members to submit their ideas and contributions for future history features. The feature is coordinated by LSA Archivist Margaret Thomas, in consultation with the LSA Secretariat.

The trigger event for this periodic feature could be an important day, week, month or year in the history of the LSA and/or the field of Linguistics. We are happy to publish as many features as often as LSA members are willing to contribute. Please submit your ideas via e-mail to Margaret Thomas or Alyson Reed.

As new features are published, a compendium of links will be provided below.
