Current and former Michigan State sociolinguists were recently at the NWAV 48 (New Ways of Analyzing Variation) conference, October 10-12. The Eugene, Oregon location meant that not everyone could make the long trip, but presenters included:
- Xiaoshi Li.
- Mohammed Ruthan.
- Irina Zaykovskaya.
- Xiaomei Wang and Suzanne Evans Wagner.
Former MSU Sociolinguistics students Monica Nesbitt (now a post-doc at Dartmouth College) and James Stanford were also there, along with former faculty Dennis Preston and Marisa Brook. We enjoyed a great MSU+affiliates dinner on the Friday night.
Thanks to the members of the lab who gave us valuable feedback on our practice presentations!
