There are currently two special interest groups that involve Linguistics students and faculty.
Languages and Genes Group
Coordinated by Professor Natalia Rakhlin, the group is attempting to find statistically significant associations between specific language features and inter-population differences in allele frequency among SNPs and haplotypes of certain genes. Its members include faculty grad students from linguistics, communication sciences and disorders, and biological sciences. The Languages and Genes Group has been funded for the past two years by a Humanities Center working group grant.
Chinese Linguistics Reading Group
Coordinated by Professor Haiyong Liu, the group focuses on recent publications on Chinese written in both Chinese and English. It is open to all students and faculty interested in the Chinese language and linguistics.
