Meeting Description: The 21st Lavender Languages and Linguistics Conference (American University, Washington, DC) is February 14-16, 2014. With Lav 21, the Conference enters its third decade. There was much discussion at Lav 20 about language and normativity, and that discussion will likely continue at Lav 21, along with attention to language, sexuality and privilege. Locations for these discussions will likely be as diverse as in previous years, e.g. diaspora and new media, pornography and personal narrative.
