The 2013 Linguistic Institute, sponsored by the Linguistic Society of America and the University of Michigan Department of Linguistics, was held from June 24 to July 19, 2013 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The theme of this year's institute was "Universality and Variability."

Several USC students, faculty and alumni were a part of this year's institute:

  • Professor Khalil Iskarous taught the Articulatory Phonology course
  • Graduate Students Thomas Borer, Samantha Gordon (awarded a fellowship to attend by the LSA), Mairym Llorens, and Ulrike Steindl (awarded a fellowship to attend by the LSA) attended
  • Graduate Alumna Jelena Krivokapić attended

In addition to class, workshop, and conference attendance, participants enjoyed several group outings, a 4th of July picnic, lectures from the likes of Anne Charity Hudley, Keren Rice, Janet Pierrehumbert, Daniel Everett, Lyle Campbell, and Noam Chomsky, and more.
