Buckeye East Asian Linguistics Forum 5 (2022)

BEAL Forum logo - 500x500The Buckeye East Asian Linguistics Forum 5 (BEAL Forum 5) provides a platform primarily for graduate students to articulate and exchange ideas on their research findings with forum participants. It is a one-day event with keynote lectures and students’ presentation sessions. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, students’ presentation sessions were all posters. However, we had 15-minute presentation sessions via Zoom instead in BEAL Forum 4 (Spring 2021), and will do so as well for BEAL Forum 5. The BEAL Forum is an excellent opportunity to present one’s research in a public arena and to receive comments individually. The forum is intended to showcase regional research activities in East Asian linguistics. The event is free and open to the public. (There will be proceedings.)
