CKLiC Participants

Central Kentucky Linguistics Conference (CKLiC) 2021



The 9th annual Central Kentucky Linguistics Conference will be held virtually April 8 through April 10, 2021.

In addition to the University of Kentucky, we are excited to open up submissions to graduate and advanced undergraduate students from The Ohio State University and Indiana University.


We are currently soliciting abstracts for presentations at the conference, with an abstract submission deadline of:

*** Sunday, February 14, 2021 ***


Proposals may be submitted at the following link:


There will be three types of presentations at the conference

➯ full presentations (15 minutes of presentation + 5 minutes for questions).

➯ lightning talks (5-7 minutes of presentation + 20-minute question panel).

➯ poster presentations (presented to multiple people for a 1-hour 45-minute poster session)

Poster presentations will occur in a single poster session; non-poster presentations will be grouped into sessions according to topic.

We would like to emphasize that, at CKLiC, each type of presentation is as professionally prestigious as the others; some work may be better suited to a specific format, and the format of presentation is not reflective of the quality of the work.



• Submitted abstracts should contain the following information:

➯ title of your presentation.

➯ descriptive abstract of your presentation (no more than 250 words long)

• This is a "double-blind" review process, which means that you do not know the identity of the abstract reviewers and they do not know your identity. For this reason, your abstract should *not* include your name or any other identifying information.

• Student abstracts will be reviewed by faculty volunteers at their respective institutions; hence submissions will be locally competitive. This means that UK faculty will review proposals from UK students, OSU faculty will review proposals from OSU students, and IU faculty will review proposals from IU students.

  *** Final decisions will be communicated by March 2021 ***
