Meeting Description: Locating Language: A Symposium on the Linguistics of Place

Plenary Speakers:

Barbara Johnstone, Carnegie Mellon University
Galey Modan, The Ohio State University
Lauren Hall-Lew, University of Edinburgh

A speaker’s hometown, birthplace, neighborhood, region, or country may be key, if not primary, factors in their self-identity, often in interaction with other social factors such as gender, ethnicity, or political affiliation. While region or geography is sometimes taken for granted in linguistic work, recent research has highlighted the complexity of the ways in which speakers use language to orient towards place, demonstrating that linguistic practice does not merely reflect place, but also constructs it.
