Call for Papers:

In this spirit, authors are invited to submit abstracts of original empirically- or theoretically-driven research on Dominicans' language practices in national and diasporic contexts; research may address any level of language analysis, from perspectives of structural linguistics, sociolinguistics, or anthropological linguistics.

Prospective presenters should submit a preliminary abstract of less than 500 words to Almeida Jacqueline Toribio: toribio at austin.utexas.edu by August 15.
