Meeting Description:

The DiVar conference was conceptualized as a forum to promote diversity within
sociolinguistic inquiry - topic, approach, and method – and for the promotion
of diversity within the discipline. Organized chiefly as a regional
conference, DiVar will gather together scholars and students from the east
coast and mid-South in order to encourage networking, conversation, and
collaboration. To that end, we welcome conference paper proposals that discuss
fundamental issues in language variation, working both to re-examine our
present understanding of variation and also to present research that pushes
the bounds of theory within the discipline.

2nd Call for Papers: 

The impetus for the DiVar conference is a keen desire to expand the breadth
and depth of diversity in language study while we explore the breadth and
depth of linguistic variation. To that end, our inaugural meeting will have
DIVERSITY as its theme. Diversity here is loosely conceptualized to include
special interest in the following areas:

- Diversity in language study with attention paid to a range of groups within
society (from big data to small groups to individual speakers) 
- Diversity in theoretical approaches to the study of language variation
- Diversity in terms of theories and approaches that can inform the field of
linguistics - here we especially encourage multi- and interdisciplinary
- Diversity of data analysis and visualization 
- Diversity of presenters: we will have special sessions for undergraduate and
graduate students in addition to presentations drawn from a general pool

We invite proposal for the following categories: individual papers, posters,
and colloquia. Please visit our website for more information: 


The deadline for proposals for papers, posters, and colloquia is September 11,
2016.  The proposals will be submitted via an online via EasyAbs:
http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/DiVar2017. Submissions will be evaluated by
the DiVar Organizing Committee in terms of quality of content, significance,
originality, thematic relevance and quality of abstract presentation.
Notifications will be sent out early November.
