      Dear All,

      We are happy to announce GURT 2015, which will take place at Georgetown University March 13-15

      Diversity and Super-Diversity: Sociocultural Linguistic Perspectives



      March 13-14-15, 2015






      The objective of GURT 2015 is to foster and advance a reflection on the ways in which linguistic and communicative practices are affected by and contribute to diversity and on the theoretical-methodological challenges that accounting for such phenomena poses to sociocultural linguistics.


      GURT invites papers that explore the connections between diversity and linguistic/communicative practices. We are particularly (although not exclusively) interested in the following topics:


      ·      The impact of diversity on sociocultural linguistic theory and research methodologies

      ·      The relationships between diversity and hybridity in linguistic and semiotic practices

      ·      Challenges and responses to linguistic and cultural diversity in different institutional and non institutional domains

      ·      Diversity and the construction/negotiation of identities

      ·      The use of linguistic and other semiotic resources within new practices involving diverse communities

      ·      Language policies and diversity issues in the public space

      ·      Diversity of genres, practices and participation frameworks in mediated communication

      ·      Diversity and time/space scales


      Deadline for submission of abstracts: October 15, 2014
