Meeting Description:

Languaging Diversity is the itinerating conference of the I-Land Interuniversity Research Centre, an international independent and interdisciplinary center for advanced studies in Linguistics, Social Sciences and the Humanities with a focus on the key notions of identity and diversity, from a linguistic, cultural, and gender studies perspective, in and across cultures.

The 7th edition of the Languaging Diversity conference (LD2021) focuses on the emotional challenges that result from the social innovations of the last two decades, and on the way such experiences are expressed in discourse. Conference convenors invite papers and posters that investigate the intersection of emotion, communication and social change, also within the framework of digital communication. The contributions presented at the LD2021 conference will explore the expression of emotion(s) at the different levels of linguistic description (phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical, semantic, pragmatic, discursive), and in texts and contexts related to traditional and digital genres in different domains, including (but not restricted to) health, medicine and science, media, politics, the law, academia, the world of corporate and institutional work, education and learning.

The LD2021 conference invites two categories of presentation:
- Paper presentation
- Digital poster

Paper presentations, to be scheduled in parallel sessions, will last 20 minutes, to be followed by a ten-minute Q/A session.

Digital posters will be published on the Underline platform before the beginning of the conference and will involve a three-minute online presentation, with an interactive Q&A session.

When submitting, please indicate in the first line of the abstract whether the proposal is for a paper or a poster presentation. Abstracts should be between 500 and 800 words for oral papers and between 400 and 500 words for digital posters, references excluded.

Abstracts should provide a clear outline of the aim of the study, including clearly articulated research question(s), details of the theoretical approach(es), method(s) and data sources, analytical focus and relevance of results (if already available). Both types of submission should include a list of references.

Please note that all submitted abstracts of papers and posters for the LD2021 conference will undergo a blind review process.
