The cluster invites guest speakers from various departments to present their emerging linguistic research, provide the members with myriad perspectives on a wide array of topics, and engage in a lively discussion. The cluster also hosts professional development workshops, facilitated by the members of the faculty, staff, industry, and fellow graduate students.

For Fall 2021, Cluster talks will be held in-person on Tuesdays from 12-1pm in Sproul 622. If you would like to attend via Zoom, please email us at: ucd.langsymposium@gmail.com.
