The Center for Language, Interaction, and Culture Graduate Student Association (CLIC GSA) at UCLA is a student organization that promotes interdisciplinary work at the intersections of language, culture, and conversational activities. This year’s members include graduate students from Anthropology, Applied Linguistics, East Asian Languages & Cultures, and Sociology.
CLIC GSA hosts an annual conference publishes a student-run journalin conjunction with the UC Santa Barbara Language, Interaction, and Social Organization (LISO) graduate student association. The conference is hosted at UCLA every other year. CLIC GSA also occasionally hosts CLIC-Shop Gatherings, during which graduate students are able to discuss their research and receive feedback from colleagues and faculty members.
Our membership is increasing every year, and we encourage any graduate and undergraduate students at UCLA interested in joining the group or acting as a conference volunteer to contact us to get on our mailing list for events and conference planning meetings.
