FLC 2014

The 8th Annual International Free Linguistics Conference will be held at the School of Foreign Languages, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 26-27 September 2014

There will be post-conference workshops led by the Focus Speakers on 28-29 September

Free Linguistics Conference aims to provide a widely accessible forum for linguists in all areas of research to come together and share their diverse perspectives and research. As an inclusive forum, presentations at the FLC always range across various subjects in linguistics, breaking down existing borders between schools and sub-fields. We also endeavour to provide an accessible conference by avoiding the staggering fees that often prevent students and scholars from attending various linguistic forums, so there are absolutely no fees to register, attend or present at the FLC.
