Meeting Description:

Hungarian Sociolinguistics Conference, as one of the most prestigious events of Hungarian linguistics has a history of over two decades. HuSlx is a biennial conference (Hungarian: Élőnyelvi Konferencia) that provides a forum to present recent research in sociolinguistics, dialectology and applied linguistics. The focus of the conference is Hungarian as used in Hungary and her 7 neighboring countries, as well as issues related to language maintenance and shift, language rights, and language in education. The conferences alternate between locations in Hungary and a neighboring country. The last one was held in Budapest, Hungary in 2018. Last year it would have taken place in Beregszász (Transcarpathia region, Ukraine). Due to the ongoing uncertainties caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the organizers of the 21st Hungarian Sociolinguistics Conference decided to postpone the event from October 2020 to the following year. However, as the current situation still does not allow for a safe face-to-face meeting, the conference will be held online at the discretion of the organizers. The biennial Hungarian Sociolinguistics Conference will be organized online on 4-5 November, 2021 via Zoom. The event will be coordinated from Beregszász (Transcarpathia, Ukraine).

Call for Papers:

Registrations already received will be carried over to the 2021 event. Applications already accepted will also be carried over to this year’s conference.

The central theme of the conference remains: the border as a converging and diverging factor in language.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is June 15, 2021. Notifications of acceptance will be sent in the first week of July.

Abstracts can be submitted online at the following link:

Attendance is free of charge.
