LISO Scholars

LISO Scholars are visiting scholars from other universities around the world who conduct research on issues related to social interaction. LISO Scholars are recognized on the LISO website and are invited to attend and participate in regular meetings and special events hosted by LISO. The LISO Scholars Program is unable to provide any financial or other resources; visiting scholars must have their own funding.

LISO Scholars must be affiliated with one of the four contributing LISO departments (Communication, Education, Linguistics, and Sociology). Prospective visiting scholars should apply directly to the department most relevant to their research area and should indicate in their application their interest in being selected as a LISO Scholar. Graduate students, faculty members, and professional research scientists are all eligible to be named as LISO Scholars. LISO Scholars’ visits may begin and end at any time and may be of any length agreed upon by the sponsoring department.
