Call Deadline: 30-Oct-2018

Meeting Description:

Variationist Sociolinguistics is one of the most traditional and prolific areas in Brazil. However, the debate in Sociolinguistics has generally been taking place in local initiatives and in interinstitutional events, and the area still doesn’t hold a specific event that joins researchers and their research at a national level. Local research groups have developed an important description of several different phenomena, which has contributed to characterizing Brazilian Portuguese and its different varieties, modalities, and registers.

The satellite meeting Debates in Sociolinguistics embodies these initiatives and proposes advances in the methodological and theoretical debates in order to solve problems that are not exclusive to the Brazilian Sociolinguistics scenario. Our aim is to align present works with discussions in Sociolinguistics at an international level. We thus invite participants to submit papers on the topics listed below, for which the questions offer guidelines but don’t restrict the proposals: (1) Mobility, migration, and contact; (2) Variation in production and in perception and (3) Data collecting, control, and treatment.

Call for Papers:

Submissions at:

- Only abstracts will be accepted. They must be sent using the registration platform.
