The Department of English will be closed for the Holidays starting 24 December. We will return on 5 January. Happy Holidays!



The University of British Columbia is proud to be hosting a Dual Conference, comprising two international language and linguistics conferences: the 20th Biennial Dictionary Society of North America Meeting (DSNA-20) and the 9th Studies in the History of the English Language Conference (SHEL-9). We are anticipating fruitful synergies, while respecting the traditions of each conference. This combined conference will be hosted by the Department of English & Canadian English Laboratory and will be held on 5 to 7 June 2015 at UBC's Vancouver campus.
