Call for Papers:

The Graduate Students of Language at Temple (GSOLT) are accepting proposals for our 4th annual Language, Linguistics, and Life Conference. The student-run conference is a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to present their research or works-in-progress in a supportive environment conducive to professional and scholarly development. We seek proposals for (15-minute) oral paper presentations from graduate students and posters from undergraduate students. In the spirit of the theme, we encourage presenters to consider using two or more languages, dialects, language varieties, or registers as a mode of presentation. The theme of translanguaging is meant to provide a focus for the conference; however, as an interdisciplinary organization, we will consider any language-related topics, which may include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

- Linguistics Literature & Cultural Studies
- Bi-/Multilingualism, Linguistic Diversity
- Globalization and Language
- Language Education, Pedagogy, Assessment
- Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
- First and Second Language Development
- Heritage Language Studies

Abstracts should be written in English and include the theoretical background for the study, the method, (anticipated) findings, and a connection to the conference theme, if applicable. Also, please specify the language(s) of the presentation and any technology needs beyond PowerPoint. All presenters are free to use two or more languages, dialects, or registers in their presentations, PowerPoints, handouts, or posters.
