Three graduate students in English — Charity Anderson ((“Don’t Hold Your Tongue: Overcoming the monolinguial bias in American Schools”), Cristopher Kapela (“Problems with cL2 and aL2 research,” a critical review of past research comparing child vs. adult second language learning), and Inmaculada Zanoguera (“Neuroscience in Linguistics: Rethinking the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis”) — presented papers at the 2017 conference of the Linguistic Association of Canada and the United States. Cris and Inma presented in person at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, July 31 – August 3. Charity presented from Toledo via videolink. As a side note: Cris and Inma are two of our last students in the Master of Arts — English Concentration in English as a Second Language, which is closing down due to a lack of faculty replacements over the years.
