Notice: the next Kentucky Foreign Language Conference will be held April 22-24, 2021

Dear KFLC Participants,

Following the University of Kentucky’s recent decision to abide by municipal and state public health authorities’ recommendations regarding the COVID-19 spread, it is with much regret that we announce that we have decided to cancel the 2020 KFLC Conference, scheduled to take place on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, KY on April 16-18, 2020.

The University of Kentucky is not alone in reaching such a decision, as other institutions have taken similar action after monitoring the situation very closely and weighing the risks to all individuals involved. As of March 11, 2020 The World Health Organization has formally declared the COVID-19 outbreak a “pandemic”, and we trust that canceling the conference is the right decision, in spite of the inconvenience this may cause.

The KFLC is committed to refund the registration fees of all participants, and we will begin the process as soon as possible, knowing that this may take a few weeks to complete.

Thank you for your interest in and continued support of the KFLC, and we wish you the best until we gather again in 2021.


Sadia Zoubir-Shaw
Executive Director of the KFLC
