Culture, Language, and Social Practice (CLASP) V Conference 

September 15-17, 2017 

Boulder, CO 


CLASP V - Call for Papers 


The deadline for abstract submissions to the CLASP V conference has been
extended to June 15th, 2017. 


CLASP V is the fifth multidisciplinary conference run by graduate students
that promotes the broad connections between culture, language, and society
grounded in empirical research. We hope to once again bring together an
array of national and international scholars from diverse countries and
sub-disciplines for the CLASP V conference this year in Boulder, CO.


The conference is open to students and faculty who are interested in
language, social practice, and interdisciplinary study. Abstracts for papers
covering topics in various areas of sociocultural linguistics are invited
and are due by June 15th, 2017. Examples of possible frameworks or analytic
traditions may include, but are not limited to:




Linguistic anthropology


Narrative studies


Critical discourse analysis


Conversation analysis


Language and identity


Discourse pragmatics


Computer-mediated discourse


Ethnography of speaking


Language and literacy


Verbal art and performance


Bilingualism and code-switching


Second language acquisition


Language and globalization


Intercultural communication


Language socialization

Submission Guidelines:

<mailto:clasp.abstracts at gmail.com>  by June 2nd, 2017. The conference will
include a paper competition for graduate students (see details below). The

- Email address(es) of the author(s)


-Title of proposed paper

- Any additional comments


Best Graduate Student Paper in Culture, Language, and Social Practice:


The winner of this competition will have their name mentioned in the
official conference program and will be offered a student plenary spot at
the conference. This student plenary will be approximately 45 minutes and
will provide an opportunity for the winner to share their research in more
depth than a typical presentation slot. Note however that the plenary spot
is a potential honor and depends on the quality of submissions received.


To be considered in the competition for the student plenary, authors
(graduate students only) should submit a paper of up to 8,000 words plus
references. Your submission email should indicate whether you would like to
be considered for a regular conference presentation if you do not win the
plenary spot.


Please email your (up to) 8,000 word-paper to clasp.abstracts at gmail.com
<mailto:clasp.abstracts at gmail.com>  by June 15th, 2017. The paper should be
attached in Microsoft Word (.doc) or PDF format and should contain NO
information identifying the author(s) of the paper.
