New report shows gender ratios for linguistics PhDs are coming into greater balance

The 2016 Annual Report on the State of Linguistics in Higher Education provides data and information on careers in linguistics, trends in linguistic teaching positions, gender and ethnicity breakdowns within linguistics, and topics of specialization in linguistic programs, among other areas. The Annual Report, the fourth to be released by the LSA, features data provided by linguistics departments and programs throughout North America, federal government surveys, the American Academy, the LSA’s internal membership directory, and data on gender collected by LSA’s Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics (COSWL) from 50 select institutions.
