Meeting Description: The Ohio State University's Slavic Linguistics Forum and Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures is happy to announce the first annual DSEELC Linguistics Symposium, a conference which will feature work by scholars at different career points working on language as it is spoken outside what it is traditionally considered its ''homeland''.

It is often taken for granted that national boundaries delineate linguistic boundaries. However, languages are not circumscribed by political borders. We therefore invite scholars working in contact linguistics, bilingualism, heritage language, immigrant language, sociolinguistics, dialectology, historical linguistics, second language acquisition, and related fields to submit abstracts pertaining to the study of language as spoken elsewhere than what is considered its traditional “homeland.”

We are also very happy to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Renee Perelmutter, Associate Professor of Slavic and Jewish Studies at the University of Kansas. Dr. Perelmutter’s research interests include Yiddish and Slavic morphosyntax and pragmatics, (im)politeness, identity construction, and women’s online discourse. Her current research focuses on Israeli Russian conflict discourse, code-switching, and language/prestige issues.
