As the original deadline for submission of abstracts to BUCLD 29
approaches, we have become aware that many researchers did not receive
the Call for Papers in the first mailing, which was distributed on
March 17 through Info-Childes, Linguist, AAAL, and Funknet.� Although
we followed this initial announcement with individual notices to over
1000 personal and departmental e-mail addresses on April 26, we
realize that not receiving the first Call might have caused some
inconvenience for many of you.

Therefore, we are extending the abstract submission deadline to
Monday, May 17, at 8:00 p.m. EST.� As before, you may submit your
abstracts using the webform found here:
http://www.bu.edu/linguistics/APPLIED/BUCLD/abstract.htm

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns at
langconfbu.edu.

Sincerely,

THE LANGUAGE AND IDENTITY TAPESTRY: 
Linguistic re/presentation of identities in social interaction

GLS 2005
Friday, February 18 - Sunday, February 20, 2005
Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.

Tapestry - a form of art in which individual strands are woven
together to form a cohesive whole. Tapestries are characterized by
their complex and rich pictorial designs.

The theme of GLS 2005, The Language and Identity Tapestry: linguistic
re/presentation of identities in social interaction, captures the
multiple ways identities are produced and reproduced through
linguistic practices in every day social interaction. We encourage
papers that illuminate the often invisible process of identity
constructions through language in social interactions. We are
interested in how local linguistic practices constitute individual and
collective identity performances. The metaphor of tapestry reflects
this relationship: the weaving together of separate linguistic
practices to produce meaningful displays of identities.

GLS 2005 is a student conference run by the graduate students in the
Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University. The conference
will include three days of student oral presentations selected on the
basis of abstracts submitted by October 1, 2004. There will also be
individual plenary addresses and two panel discussions on the theme of
language and identity from established scholars in the field of
sociolinguistics. Another highlight of the conference will be the
opening workshops on locating identities in spoken and written
language as well as in visual forms of communication. More information
about the plenary addresses, panels, and conference workshops will be
available on the conference website.

We invite submissions of abstracts for oral presentations. Papers will
last 20 minutes with additional time for discussion. Works submitted
should specifically address the language and identity
relationship. The conference is interdisciplinary, and we invite work
on language and identity from a variety of fields, including not only
sociolinguistics but also fields such as anthropology, sociology,
cultural studies, communication, and queer or gender studies. We
encourage work within but not limited to the following areas:

- Discourse analysis and critical discourse analysis
- Variationist perspectives on individual and/or group identity
- Multimodal and/or semiotic analyses of identity construction 
- Language and ethnic/national identity
- Ethnographic examinations of language and identity
- Performance of identity in private and public spheres
- Language and identity in media 

The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 1, 2004. We
require both paper and electronic copies of your abstract. Paper
abstract submissions should be sent to:

GLS 2005 Conference
Department of Linguistics

3700 O Street NW
