|Meeting Description:||The International Society for Language Studies will hold its biennial conference from June 18-20, 2015 at the Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town. The theme of the conference will be “Critical Language Studies: Focusing on Community.”
Language is more than the words that are communicated from one to another. Language represents our identity in terms of our relationships with others, how we are connected to others, power between individuals or groups, and so forth. A critical examination of the connection between language and society also requires a critical consideration of the ways in which language and community are linked. Community is defined differently across disciplines and in varying situations, and as such we invite scholars to engage in discussions about how what community means in their respective areas of research and to explicitly discuss how their presentation is relevant to their understanding of the relationship between community and language.
