Meeting Description: Displacement, or forced migration, can manifest in myriad ways including the removal of indigenous people from their homelands, exile, and refugee resettlement, and has been shown to have traumatic effects not only on the people who are physically displaced but also on their offspring. We also conceive displacement more broadly to include not only physical, but also generational, social, ecological, and cultural displacement and its impact on identity and community. Of course, the effects of displacement on language may be devastating in any of these conceptualizations.

We hope to feature presentations addressing issues of language and displacement as can be seen through studies of:

- Language and identity
- Language documentation and revitalization
- Ethnographic accounts
- Community and civic engagement
Linguistic Subfield: Anthropological Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; General Linguistics; Language Documentation; Lexicography
