SALSA Conference - Language in Society: Culture, Space, and Identity April 20-21, 2018

Fri, April 20, 2018 | UT Austin

SALSA XXVI will take place April 20-21, 2018 at the University of Texas at Austin.

This year's conference theme is Language in Society: Culture, Space, and Identity. Language is a distinctly human characterisitic, central to all human social organization. It is the medium through which humans shape their identities, relate to one another, and construct social realities. The conference will focus on the ways speakers from diverse sociohistorical and cultural backgrounds use language to negotiate their identities in particular spaces. We welcome both diachronic and synchronic perspectives for the study of language in society.

The Symposium About Language and Society, Austin (SALSA) is an annual symposium promoting the study of language and its intersection with society. Originally created through the joint efforts of students from the Linguistics, Anthropology, and Communication Studies Departments at The University of Texas, SALSA has developed into an interdisciplinary conference with contributions from various fields, including foreign language education, educational psychology, media studies, and language departments, including French & Italian, Spanish & Portuguese, German, and English. Our conference annual proceedings appear in special editions of Texas Linguistic Forum.
