Meeting Description:

The Lavender Languages & Linguistics conference series has a rich history of
examining language use and representation in relation to lesbian, gay,
bisexual, trans* and/or queer life, as well as language and sexuality more
broadly. In April 2017, LavLang will be held in the UK for the first time,
having been hosted annually by American University (Washington, D.C.) since
1993. We anticipate that, by bringing LavLang24 to Europe, more students and
scholars with an interest in language and sexuality will be able to join our

Keynote Speakers:

Dr Helen Sauntson, York St John University (UK), 
Professor Paul Baker, Lancaster University (UK).

The conference will also include remarks on the past and future of language
and sexuality research by Professor William Leap, American University (USA).

The conference series proudly maintains a ''no attitude'' atmosphere, which
will continue at LavLang24 in Nottingham: all attendees should feel welcome in
what will be a supportive and collaborative space.

2nd Call for Papers:

Please see below for the final call for papers for the 24th Lavender Languages
and Linguistics conference on language and sexuality (University of
Nottingham, UK). 
- Deadline for abstracts for individual papers, poster presentations, and
panel proposals: 3rd October 2016
- Acceptance of abstracts: mid-November 2016
- Registration and accommodation information available from: end November 2016
- Registration opens: January 2017. 
There are a number of sessions currently under development detailed on our
er-development.aspx. Those interested in submitting an abstract to one of
these panels should contact the organiser of that panel directly. 
Abstract submission is now open:
We invite abstracts for presentations which explore both macro and micro
contexts, but which acknowledge the need to position research into
site-specific practices within broader contexts of social, cultural and
linguistic theory. Papers will be presented in English, but research on all
linguistic contexts is welcomed and encouraged. Possible topics include, but
are by no means limited to:
- Language, sexuality and pedagogy
- LGBTQ+ discourse 
- Literary and media representations of LGBTQ+ life
- (Anti)homophobic and transphobic discourses, and other languages of
- Pornography and/or the language of desire
- Queer linguistics and (hetero/homo)normativity 
- Variationist approaches to LGBTQ+ language/identity
- Intersectionality, language, and sexual identity 
- Language, sexuality, and affect
Abstracts are invited for individual papers, poster presentations, and panels.
Panel organisers are responsible for the invitation and selection of
abstracts, and the submission of a panel proposal: there should be between 4-8
papers included in a panel. 
All abstracts should be no more than 250 words. Proposals for panels should
include an overall abstract (also 250 words) as well as titles and abstracts
for all intended panel members. All paper presentations, including those
within panels, will be a maximum of 20 minutes with 5 minutes for questions.
