The day before this year’s SALT conference, there will be a two-hour satellite workshop on making teaching in Semantics and Pragmatics more inclusive and equitable, with an eye towards welcoming groups currently underrepresented in the subfield. The workshop will concentrate on two areas: (1) making the content of semantics classes more inclusive, including syllabus revisions and example data from a broader range of source languages and language varieties; and (2) making the style of pedagogy more inclusive and welcoming to all students. The forum will include an optional final hour to facilitate unstructured discussions among attendees.

Registration is free, via the main SALT conference registration form, and registered participants will receive a link to the virtual event. ASL interpretation may be requested during the registration process.
