The Department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese is pleased to announce the sixth annual Penn State Undergraduate Exhibition in Hispanic and General Linguistics (PSUxLing) to be held virtually on October 9th, 2020. PSUxLing is an annual conference that is dedicated to promoting excellence in undergraduate research in linguistics. The first PSUxLing took place on October 6th, 2014, and was attended by over 100 faculty, graduate, and undergraduate linguists.

During PSUxLing, undergraduate linguists have the opportunity to present their research at a two-hour poster session, as well as attend two keynote talks by leading researchers in our field. The 2020 keynote speakers are Dr. Esther Brown (University of Colorado Boulder) and Dr. Gillian Lord (University of Florida). More information about our speakers is available on the Keynote Speakers page.

PSUxLing is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate linguists from across the country to meet other linguists, share their own research, and gain further knowledge of the field of linguistics. While only current undergraduate students are eligible to present their work, everyone is welcome to attend!
