In-Group

A discussion group for sociolinguists at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

    We are a group of graduate students and faculty at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa who are interested in Sociolinguistics. Using a wide variety of methods, we work together on projects which investigate the relationship between language and society and the use of language in society.

    We meet every other week. If you are interested in joining us, email Katie at kdrager@hawaii.edu.
