Meeting Description:

The 21st Lavender Languages and Linguistics Conference (American University, Washington, DC) is February 14-16, 2014. With Lav 21, the Conference enters its third decade. There was much discussion at Lav 20 about language and normativity, and that discussion will likely continue at Lav 21, along with attention to language, sexuality and privilege. Locations for these discussions will likely be as diverse as in previous years, e.g. diaspora and new media, pornography and personal narrative. Full conference details are available at www.american.edu/cas/anthropology/lavender-languages.

Call for Papers:

This year’s program committee is committed to diversifying conference discussion and invites proposals for individual papers, panels and special events that situate discussions of language and sexuality within broader inflections, e.g. gender, race, ethnicity, age, class, mobility, ability, citizenship, nationality.

Sessions under development include:

- (Anti)Homophobic discourse analysis
- Erotic/porn socialities
- Language, sexuality & hip hop culture
- Intersexions: Language & identity nexuses
- Language as a means of control: Monitoring Salvadoran LGBT immigrants
- Queering heterosexuality and challenging normativities

Presentations in one of these sessions or on any topic related to LGBTQ linguistics are welcome. Please submit abstracts to the program committee c/o provenchumbc.edu before November 11, 2014. See submission details on the conference website.

Presentation formats may include individual papers, reports on research-in-progress, round-table discussions, topic-centered workshops, or a format more appropriate to your own work. Please indicate your presentation format in your proposal, and please make sure that your proposal identifies the language-related concerns that the presentation intends to address.

Please send a 250 word proposal to:
