The University of Colorado at Boulder is home to the Graduate Certificate Program in Culture, Language, and Social Practice (CLASP), an interdisciplinary forum on language and society for University of Colorado graduate students and faculty. The biannual CLASP Conference aims to provide an interdisciplinary arena for students and faculty - both national and international - to present empirical and theoretical research on the sociocultural analysis of language. The CLASP conference is also intended as a forum to enable participants to foster working relationships among an interdisciplinary audience of peers. The conference is organized by graduate students within the CLASP certificate program, with support from a number of CLASP program faculty and associated academic departments.
Call for Papers:
The program in Culture, Language and Social Practice at the University of Colorado at Boulder is pleased to invite abstract and panel proposals for its 3rd biannual CLASP Conference, October 7-9. Both paper and panel submissions should address the relationship of language to culture and society; examples of possible frameworks or analytic traditions may include, but are not limited to:
-Critical discourse analysis
-Bilingualism & codeswitching
-Verbal art & performance
-Language & literacy
Panel proposals should be organized as mini calls for papers in their own right, suggesting a cohesive topical or methodological theme for potential submissions. Proposals will be posted to the conference website as they are received in order to help coordinate paper submissions around a particular topic.
Organizing a full panel is not necessary for submitting a panel proposal, as other presenters are likely to submit a paper abstract for a particular panel independently after seeing it posted here. For those interested in organizing full panels on their own, please note that panels will be limited to a total of four papers.
Panel proposals of up to 250 words should be submitted by April 30 to the email address below, and will be posted to the conference website upon reception. Abstracts of 500 words for 20-minute papers may be submitted for an individual panel or independently, and should be submitted before May 7.
Paper submissions should be sent as attachments (DOC or PDF) via email toclasp.conference AT gmail.com, and should only contain the title and abstract for the paper. The body of the email should contain the following:
