Meeting Description

The 4th International Conference of Hispanic Linguistics will take place 27-29
March 2008 at Swansea University, Wales. We welcome abstracts for papers
exploring any aspects of the way in which Spanish is used in society. Of
particular interest are theoretical, methodological and empirical papers on the
use of Spanish in institutional contexts of communication. For example:

- Spanish in business communication, including call centres and service encounters
- Spanish in health-care and judicial contexts
- Spanish in educational settings
- Spanish in the mass media
- Spanish in political communication

Our theme, Spanish at Work, is not limited to how Spanish is used in its own
right but includes also how it 'works alongside' other languages in the above
contexts. Proposals for papers around issues relating to bilingualism /
multilingualism and inter- / cross- cultural communication in institutional
settings are therefore also welcome.

Final call for papers for the 4th International Conference of Hispanic
Linguistics, to be held at Swansea University, Wales, 27th - 29th March 2008.
The goal of this Conference is to bring together researchers working on
sociolinguistics, pragmatics, conversation and discourse analysis, and reflect
the growth of interest in these and related areas of Hispanic linguistics.

Our conference theme, Spanish at Work, is not limited to how Spanish is used in
its own right but includes also how it 'works alongside' other languages in
contexts such as Spanish in business communication, including call centres and
service encounters; Spanish in health-care and judicial contexts; Spanish in
educational settings; Spanish in the mass media; Spanish in political
communication. Proposals for papers around issues relating to bilingualism /
multilingualism and inter - / cross- cultural communication in institutional
settings are therefore also welcome, and we also welcome abstracts for papers
exploring any aspects of the way in which Spanish is used in society.

Presentations will be 30-minute research papers inclusive of 10 minutes for
discussion and questions. The languages of the conference are English and
Spanish. We intend to publish a selection of peer-reviewed articles.

Confirmed plenary speakers (and provisional titles):
Lars Fant (Stockholm University, Sweden): 'La negociación de la
