Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the 6th Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA6). Following in the tradition of previous LCUGAs, we invite presentations that span linguistics subfields as well as incorporate interdisciplinary research from other areas in the sciences and humanities. The central focus of this year's conference is “Place: Linguistics & Locality”. We encourage creative interpretation of this focus and welcome papers that can include: case studies of the influence of physical and geographical place and place identity on the various aspects of language; case or typological studies of isolated or marginalized speech communities; areal influence on language change; theories relating to syntactic locality; phonological studies of place of articulation; studies of periphery; analysis of lesser-studied time periods and geographic areas; and studies of pidgins, creoles, and other typically geographically local languages. Preference will be given to submissions that address interpretations of our central focus, the role of place in linguistics and language; however, we also encourage presentations on any topic relevant to the field of linguistics.

We are proud to welcome the following plenary speakers to LCUGA6:

Dr. Paul Reed, University of Alabama
Dr. Katie Carmichael, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

One $100 travel award for best student abstract will be awarded at the conference. All papers presented will be eligible for publication in our LCUGA proceedings.
