We welcome abstracts for papers exploring any aspects of the way in which Spanish is used in society. Of particular interest are theoretical, methodological and empirical papers on the interaction between language and identity from a sociolinguistic, pragmatic or discourse analytic perspective (e.g. how identity is constructed and performed or represented through language in different types of mediated and non-mediated contexts and interactions). Presentations will consist of 30-minute research papers inclusive of 10 minutes for discussion and questions.
