Published: December 18, 2018


ALC faculty hosted the annual Japanese/Korean Linguistics conference from November 29-December 1, 2018, at UCLA.  Envisioned by faculty and graduate students from UCLA, UCSB, and USC more than a quarter of a century ago, the J/K Conference celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, welcoming over 160 participants from all over the U.S. and from countries including Japan, Korea, Australia, England, and France.  Featuring 36 oral presentations and 14 poster presentations, the conference was a great success and also included a special session celebrating the life of Prof. Noriko Akatsuka, a pioneer in Japanese linguistics in the U.S. and one of the driving forces behind the inauguration of the J/K Conference.
