Locating Language: A Symposium on the Linguistics of Place
Barbara Johnstone, Carnegie Mellon University
Galey Modan, The Ohio State University
Lauren Hall-Lew, University of Edinburgh
A speaker's hometown, birthplace, neighborhood, region, or country may be key, if not primary, factors in their self-identity, often in interaction with other social factors such as gender, ethnicity, or political affiliation. While region or geography is sometimes taken for granted in linguistic work, recent research has highlighted the complexity of the ways in which speakers use language to orient towards place, demonstrating that linguistic practice does not merely reflect place, but also constructs it.
Call for Papers:
Locating Language: A Symposium on the Linguistics of Place invites dialogue about the relationship between language, place, and identity from both well-established researchers and new voices. Papers in all subfields of linguistics and related fields are welcome, including sociolinguistic variation, linguistic anthropology, discourse analysis, language contact, and sociophonetics. The format of the symposium will mix traditional presentations with extended question/discussion periods.
Abstracts should be no more than one page, excluding references, and be submitted in PDF format by November 9, 2012. PDFs should not contain the author's name, institution, or other identifying information. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out in early January.
