|Meeting Description:||This conference brings together communication scholars who investigate language in many social contexts, using quantitative or qualitative methods. Research in this field is multi-disciplinary, with particularly strong contributions from communication studies and communicology, social psychology, sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics. It focuses on the perceptions, motivations, norms and contextual factors that influence interactants in the communication process, as well as on language and communication behavior and its consequences. For more detail about language and social psychology (LASP), visit the International Association of Language and Social Psychology (IALSP) website: http://www.ialsp.org/.
The conference will highlight the work and ideas of several distinguished keynote speakers, including Professor Hans J Ladegaard (Hong Kong Baptist University), Professor Dan Landis (University of Hawai`i at Hilo), and Professor Min-Sun Kim (University of Hawai`i at Mānoa). The conference will provide:
- Innovative scholarly exchange opportunities;
- Shared meals, receptions, and the opportunity to experience the beautiful tropical beaches and hinterland of the island of O`ahu, along with the uniquely varied cultures, languages, and peoples of Hawai`i;
- As always, everything you have come to expect from an ICLASP conference!
ICLASP 14 will convene in Honolulu on the southern shore of O`ahu, which means, appropriately, the Gathering Place. Honolulu is the economic and population center of Hawai`i. From our conference headquarters at the Ala Moana Hotel you can walk to beaches, parks, shopping, or the world famous Waikiki Beach. Pirouette 360 degrees and you will see blue ocean, green mountains, and cityscape with 21st century architecture. Driving excursions can take you back in time to the events of Pearl Harbor or to the world class surfers’ destination of the North Shore. There are endless hikes through rain forests or up mountain ridges to the most breathtaking sights of mountain and ocean you can imagine. If you choose to extend your time in the islands beyond ICLASP, find time to visit one or more of the other Hawaiian Islands. Each is unique with their own attractions, their own beauty. ICLASP 14 will be held in June when the Trade Winds keep the Islands cool and daily temperature averages 27°. Dress for Paradise!
