Workshop on Immigrant Languages in the Americas

This event has passed.


We’re delighted to announce that WILA13 will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison this coming November 10-12. This is a return to where the first WILA was held in 2010 and we are planning for both virtual and in-person presentations, assuming circumstances permit. Our keynote speakers will be Naomi Nagy (Toronto) and Catherine Stafford (Wisconsin). WILA covers heritage language linguistics broadly and we especially encourage graduate students and early career researchers to submit.  The theme of WILA13 is comparative research. Submissions on this theme are especially welcome but work on heritage languages from other perspectives is likewise welcome. Please read the description on the conference website for more information. Like at every WILA, there is no registration fee to attend or present.


We will accept abstracts until July 15 at the link below.


Looking forward to seeing you in Madison in November!
