Meeting Description:

The Symposium About Language and Society-Austin is pleased to
announce its 19th Annual meeting, to be held April 15-17 at the University
of Texas at Austin. The theme of this year's conference is 'Language in the
Public Domain;' SALSA is now accepting proposals for papers that explore
the public dimensions of language. Language is a distinctly human
characteristic and central to all human social organization. It is the medium
through which we shape our identities, relate to other people, and construct
our social realities. Our focus in this conference is on language as it is used
in media, politics, performance, and other public spaces, and how language
can affect and be affected by these processes and domains of usage.

Invited speakers include:
Elaine Chun, University of South Carolina
Lars Hinrichs, UT Austin
