 SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
 SPECIAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIOLINGUISTICS
 ORGANIZED BY
 RC 25 (Research Committee on Sociolinguistics)
 of the International Sociological Association
 in conjunction with
 Social Sciences Research Council of the
 University of Evora (CIDEHUS.UE)
 March 25-29, 1996
 University of Evora - Portugal

 Theme: The Linguistic Construction of Social and Personal Identity

Plenary Speakers: Kenneth Gergen, Howard Giles, Allen Grimshaw, Emilia
Pedro

In this international conference, we will be exploring identity and
identity construction from a wide range of perspectives - social,
personal, political, regional, national and global.

We are especially eager to encourage papers and presentations on
topics such as the sociolinguistic construction of identity in terms
of gender, age, education, ethnicity, regionalism, nationalism,
multi-culturalism, and so on. We also wish to welcome theory and
research from a wide variety of ways of studying language - as
structure, discourse, text or talk.

We are hopeful of having participants from linguistics, sociology,
anthropology, communication, media studies, literary studies, history,
psychology, politics, law, language studies, various areas of applied
linguistics and discourse studies.

There will be special thematic sessions on Language Studies on the
Iberian Peninsula. If there is interest, we would be happy to
entertain other regional area sessions or panels.

Format: There will be plenary sessions on major topic areas each
morning, followed by debate. Other sessions will be organized around
sub-themes. In order to maximize participants' contact with others'
research results and perspectives, participants will be asked to
provide a copy of their paper, which will be reproduced for
distribution and discussion.

Continuing the interdisciplinary nature of previous RC 25 conferences,
we invite papers from any field which are pertinent to the theme of
the conference. The official languages of the conference are English
and Portuguese, with simultaneous interpreters available for key
sessions (at least), with the possible availability of interpreters
for French and/or Spanish, based on demand.

Deadline for Submission: There is no specific deadline for simple
registration for the conference, although we are holding reservations
in hotels and will have to release them around the end of January. If
you wish to offer a paper, send the registration form which
accompanies this message, along with a 250-word abstract, to the
contact address. We have extended the deadline to December 15th, but
will certain consider abstracts after that date, space permitting.
You may send the abstract by e-mail, following up with the hard copy
registration form by mail. Notification of acceptance will be
confirmed by mid-January.

Registration Fees and Payment: We are able to accept payment by bank
transfer, credit card or personal check. For your convenience, we
have listed approximate exchange rates with US dollars, but credit
card and bank transfer payments will be made in escudos. If you wish
to send a personal check, please contact us to verify the rate for the
currency of your payment.

(approx. $70). For non-members, there is a sliding scale: 17.000$00
for regular registrants, 14.000$00 for Iberian participants (in line
