The University of Toronto's Graduate Language Research Day (LRD) is a one-day, student-led academic conference developed with the intent to provide graduate students researching all aspects of language the opportunity to connect and learn more about the diverse language-related research that takes place across departments, campuses and affiliated hospitals at University of Toronto and also the broader community across the GTA and Ontario. Whether you are a current UofT student or visiting from another institution, LRD is free to attend!
This year, LRD will be hosted in a hybrid format; conference goers will have the option to join us in person at the University of Toronto St. George campus or online on Zoom.
Meet our Keynote Speaker!
