Meeting Description:

The CLASP Program at the University of Colorado is an interdisciplinary forum for scholars with interrelated research interests in the sociocultural and sociopolitical analysis of language. The CLASP Conference, organized at all levels by graduate students in the program, is a friendly conference designed for students and faculty to showcase new work. The conference brings in an array of national and international scholars from diverse countries and subdisciplines within sociocultural linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, conversation analysis, critical discourse analysis, bilingualism, literacy studies, ethnography of speaking, and language policy. 

Confirmed Plenary Speakers:

Dr. Benjamin Bailey – University of Massachusetts, Amherst (Communication)
Dr. Kevin O’Connor – University of Colorado, Boulder (Education)
Dr. Lal Zimman – University of California, Santa Barbara (Linguistics)

Call for Papers:

The program in Culture, Language and Social Practice (CLASP) at the University of Colorado at Boulder is pleased to invite submissions to its graduate-student-run interdisciplinary conference. Abstracts for 20 minute papers covering topics in various areas of sociocultural linguistics are invited and are due by June 15, 2015. We encourage papers that focus on the broad connections between language, culture and society and are grounded in empirical research.
Submission Guidelines:

Please email a 500 word abstract to abstract.clasp2015 at gmail.com by June 15, 2015. The conference this year will include a paper competition for graduate students (see details below). The abstract should be attached in Microsoft Word (.doc) or PDF format and should contain NO information identifying the author(s) of the paper. Abstracts are evaluated on an anonymous basis (before preparing your submission, you might want to consult these annotated model abstracts: http://www.linguisticsociety.org/resource/model-abstracts). In the body of the email, please include the following information:
- Name(s) of author(s)
- University or other affiliation(s) of the author(s)
- Email address(es) of the author(s)
- Title of proposed paper
- 3-5 keywords describing the paper
- Equipment requirements
- Any additional comments
Notification of acceptance or non-acceptance will be sent via email by August, 15, 2015.
Student Plenary Competition:

This year we will promote a competition for the 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.
For consideration 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 abstract.clasp2015 at gmail.com by June 15th, 2015. The paper should be attached in Microsoft Word (.doc) or PDF format and should contain NO information identifying the author(s) of the paper.
Please use the abstract.clasp2015 at gmail.com address to submit abstract-related questions only
