Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the 5th
Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA5).  The central focus of this
year's conference is “Language in the Margins”, and we are hosting Dr.
Salikoko Mufwene, the Frank J. McLoraine Distinguished Service Professor from
the University of Chicago and Dr. Donna Jo Napoli from Swarthmore College as
this year's plenary speakers.

Call for Papers:

Following in the tradition of previous LCUGAs, we invite presentations that
span linguistics subfields as well as incorporate interdisciplinary research
from other areas in the sciences and humanities. The central focus of this
year's conference is “Language in the Margins”. We encourage creative
interpretation of this focus and welcome papers that can include case studies
of traditionally marginalized speech communities; studies of the language of
gender, particularly of marginalized groups; lesser studied theoretical
concepts; interface conditions and phase theory, and other marginal theories;
typological studies of marginalized languages; studies of periphery;
diachronic analysis of lesser-studied time periods and geographic areas;
analysis of sign languages and other non-verbal systems of communications; and
studies of pidgins, creoles, and other typically stigmatized languages.
Preference will be given to submissions that address interpretations of our
central focus, linguistic margins; however, we also encourage presentations on
any topic relevant to the field of linguistics.

One $100 travel award for best student abstract will be awarded at the
conference. All papers presented will be eligible for publication in our LCUGA

Applicants are welcome to submit up to two abstracts, one single-authored and
one co-authored contribution. Presenters will be allotted 20 minutes, plus
5-10 minutes of discussion. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (not
including title and references); any examples should be incorporated into the
text of the abstract with relevant figures, charts, and/or graphs included on
a single separate page. Abstracts must be in Word (.doc/.docx) format, and
must not include any personally identifying information. Submissions that do
not comply with the above guidelines will not be considered for acceptance. 

Please submit all abstracts via EasyAbs at linguistlist.org/easyabs/lcuga5 by
July 1, 2018. For questions and inquiries regarding LCUGA5, please see our
website www.linguistics.uga.edu/lcuga-5 or email ugalinguisticsconf at gmail.com.
