 Symposium about Language and Society Austin XXIII Call for Papers


*Language and Borders*

April 17-18, 2015

University of Texas at Austin

SALSA is an annual symposium promoting linguistic and sociolinguistic
research at the University of Texas at Austin. Originally created through
the joint efforts of students from the Linguistic and Anthropology
Departments at the University of Texas, SALSA has developed into an
interdisciplinary conference with contributions from various fields,
including communication studies, foreign language education, educational
psychology, media studies, speech communication, and numerous language
departments. Our annual proceedings appear in special editions of Texas
Linguistic Forum.

This year’s theme is *Language and Borders*. Language is intimately
connected with human existence, and as such, is found at the borders of all
areas of human interaction, and even at the borders of what it means to be
human. What sorts of borders exist among people, places and institutions?
What are the forces and ideological underpinnings that shape and sustain
the existence of such borders? How is language related to the bounds of
human endeavor? What defines the boundaries of language itself? SALSA XXIII
will explore these questions from a variety of viewpoints.

This year's presenters will be:
Salikoko S. Mufwene

University of Chicago
Robin Queen

University of Michigan
Anthony C. Woodbury

University of Texas at Austin

*David Quinto-Pozos*

University of Texas at Austin

   - Language and law, politics, or economics
