Assoc. Prof. Ingilan, a PhD candidate at UP Diliman, presented his paper on language and identity of the Dabawenyos as manifested in the linguistic landscape of the two major streets in Davao City. His study on linguistic landscape could serve as a teaching resource where learners develop awareness of the role that different languages play in the construction of identity.

Hosted by MSU-Marawi and co-sponsored by the UP College of Arts and Letters and College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, Langkit 2020 is envisioned to be the avenue for the researchers of today to be abreast with recent issues and developments in language, culture, and integration of technology.
