November 4-6, 2010

San Antonio, Texas





The University of Texas at San Antonio

Abstract Submission is now CLOSED.


We invite submission of abstracts for papers and posters in all areas of language research related to our theme, including anthropological linguistics, education, rhetoric, writing, literacy, child language acquisition, lexicography, corpus linguistics, sign language, communication studies, variationist research in traditional and less commonly taught languages, and other areas related to language variation. Multidisciplinary, multimethods, and collaborative cutting-edge scholarship are all welcome. Abstracts not exceeding 300 words (excluding title and references) should be submitted electronically no later than June 1, 2010. Authors may submit one singly authored and one jointly-authored abstract or two jointly-authored abstracts. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously.

We are also accepting proposals for a limited number of panel sessions and workshops. In addition to traditional workshops, we also welcome cutting-edge and novel submissions particularly related to our themes of diversity, interdisciplinarity, intersectionality, and 'new' ways of analyzing language, particularly multimethods and qualitative methods. Organizers should submit 500-word abstracts describing the panel or workshop theme. Panel organizers should also include individual 300-word abstracts for each participant.
