NWAV 30 will be held at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North
Carolina, from Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 14, 2001. 
NWAV 30 marks the completion of three decades of NWAV and a time to look
ahead. Thus, in addition to the usual array of refereed papers, the
conference will feature colloquia showcasing the work of the next wave of
NWAV scholars. These colloquia will center around language and ethnicity,
sociophonetics, and the multidisciplinary profile of variationist studies. 

Special events include a night at the North Carolina State Fair; a
book-launching reception; a special performance in spoken word by Shirlette
Ammons, an award-winning poetry slammer from Mt. Olive, North Carolina;
and a Saturday night banquet honoring a couple of the founders of NWAV,
Roger W. Shuy and Ralph W. Fasold. 

Abstracts for papers or poster sessions on all topics in variation studies
and sociolinguistics are invited. Abstracts of 400 words or less
(including bibliography) should be submitted via online submission
