Dear all,

Please take a look at the Call for Papers below for an upcoming conference.
Sure to be a good one! Deadline for abstracts fast approaching: March 16th!



The notion of border is highly complex and problematic, whether it be an
officially demarcated border between two states, or a less rigorously
defined meeting space of somehow differentiated social or ethnic groups.
Leading theorists have proposed that a broad-reaching 'theory' of borders
may in fact be infelicitous, due to the contextual specificities of each
different border area that may constitute an area of study. Nevertheless,
borders remain fruitful sites for scholarly inquiry, and this conference
invites contributions from linguistics researchers of all levels whose work
focuses on borderlands.

This conference welcomes contributions from scholars of all subdisciplines
of linguistics as well as researchers in border studies whose work relates
to language or communication.

Abstract submission (300 words) is via the EasyAbs portal (deadline 16th
March 2016): http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/borderlandling

Keynote speaker: Dr Phillip M Carter, Florida International University.
June 27-28, 2016. Clifton Hill House, University of Bristol, UK.

Organised by Dr James Hawkey (Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin
American Studies), and supported by the British Academy and Leverhulme
