Call for Papers:

We’re pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts for Sociolinguistic Summer School 6. We are extending our call to all areas of Sociolinguistics, for both oral and poster presentations (preference will be given to poster presentations).

The sociolinguistics summer school is the perfect opportunity for postgraduate students to network, showcase some of their original work, as well as attend workshops and lectures by leading experts in the field. Traditionally, each day of the summer school follows a specific ‘theme’ or topic of current relevance to sociolinguistic research, this theme often reflects the research of the invited plenary speaker. We welcome students from any institution who wish to present on these topics, however, we also encourage students to present on other topics related to sociolinguistics.

Abstracts should not exceed the 300-word limit (excluding references).

Font: Times New Roman, size 12.
Title: should clearly indicate your topic of research.
Topic: When submitting your abstract to us, please include your general topic area(s) through use of keywords at the end of the abstract (For instance: sociophonetics, language and gender, code-switching, linguistic landscapes, etc.)

Do not include any images/figures/tables in your abstract submissions.

Once copy of your abstract should include a title; your name; email address; affiliation (if any); and specify if it is intended for an oral or poster presentation. The second copy should be anonymous.
