Last week, the University of Ottawa hosted the third Discourse-Pragmatic Variation and Change (DiPVaC) conference. In addition to some great talks, there was an opportunity for a little lab tourism. Here's MSU's Suzanne Evans Wagner (far right) at the famous University of Ottawa Sociolinguistics Lab, with its director, Shana Poplack (near right). On the far left are Nathalie Dion, the lab director, and Heike Pichler of Newcastle University. Heike is the originator of the DiPVaC conference and the chair of its steering committee.
