The LSA’s biennial summer Linguistic Institute, originally scheduled to be held at UMass Amherst in 2021, has now been postponed until the summer of 2022. The postponement will allow for the local organizers and the LSA to have sufficient planning time to ensure the health and well-being of participants in this flagship event. Having sponsored the Linguistic Institute since 1928, we do not make this decision lightly. In our view, it is essential that this event be conducted in-person, and not remotely. We are still working with the local organizers to determine specific dates in 2022 that will afford us access to all necessary facilities, while avoiding overlap with other LSA co-sponsored events, such as CoLang. As further details become available, the LSA will issue updates to its members and the linguistics community.
