SECOL making an appearance in sunny Boca Raton, Florida has been a long time in the making. The last time SECOL came to Florida was in 1992 when the annual conference was hosted by the University of Florida. In recent years we've seen the south, but we haven't seen south Florida. Bringing SECOL to FAU is done in honor of our recently retired Dr. Robert Trammell, a long-time active member and past president of SECOL from 1976 to 1977. It is with deep regret that Dr. Trammell passed away on December 14th, 2018. We honor his contributions to the field of linguistics and to SECOL by hosting SECOL 2019 in Boca Raton.
This year is sure to be a linguistically-engaging and productive conference as we seek to maintain dialogues both within and across fields in theoretical and applied linguistics. The linguistic tide is on the rise with plenty to discuss. Set sail for Boca Raton in May/June 2019 - bring with you your recent research, colleagues and students, snorkel, and get ready to have your linguistic chakras aligned.
We welcome you to Boca Raton and to SECOL 2019!
