The LSA's Committee on Gender Equity in Linguistics (COGEL), in collaboration with SALTED (the SALT Equity & Diversity committee), have developed a guidebook for conference organizers in linguistics on how to better organize an inclusive and equitable conference.

The first Experiments in Linguistic Meaning (ELM) conference will be hosted virtually by the University of Pennsylvania, September 16-18, 2020. The schedule is now online.

The Dynamic Language Infrastructure – Documenting Endangered Languages (DLI-DEL) Fellowships are offered as part of a joint, multi-year funding program of NEH and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop and advance scientific and scholarly knowledge concerning endangered human languages. The application has been streamlined and consists of three pages, in contrast ot the previous twenty-page application.
