Call for Papers: 14th Biennial Conference of the High Desert Linguistics Society, November 20-22, 2020

UPDATE: In light of the developing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to host HDLS 14 as a fully virtual conference.

Extended Abstract Deadline: August 10, 2020

The High Desert Linguistics Society is pleased to announce our 14th biennial conference, HDLS 14. The conference will take place November 20-22, 2020 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. HDLS 14 will focus on research in cognitive and functional linguistics, typology, sociocultural linguistics, indigenous languages, and Hispanic linguistics. This conference will also highlight interdisciplinary research from the point of view of psychology, cognitive science, anthropology, education, and computer science, among others.

Along with other topics in linguistics, sociocultural research regarding language use are of interest for this conference, including research focused on language and identity, such as gender, ethnicity/race, social class, etc. With the rise of related issues in our society, we believe interdisciplinary studies have become more important than before. We learned that Gender and Language community also focuses on language-based research on gender and sexuality but from more than just a linguistic perspective. In this regard, we value research on the intersections between language and gender and hope our audience will be able to attend some talks on this topic and share ideas as well.

We are honored to announce that our keynote presenters for HDLS 14 are:

Barbara Dancygier, University of British Columbia
Ryan Lepic, Gallaudet University
Catherine Rhodes, University of New Mexico

Applicants can submit abstracts for presentations, posters, and themed panels. Abstracts for presentations and posters must be no more than 300 words excluding examples, tables, charts, and references (ASL submission; 2-4 minute video).

For themed panels, each presenter will have 20 minutes, plus 30 minutes of discussion for the panel as a whole. Presenters interested in this format are responsible for deciding who will be part of the suggested panel. Only one document should be submitted per panel. The document should include the proposed panel topic (300 words; 2-4 minutes), and how each presenter will contribute to it (500 words total; 4-6 minutes).

Abstracts may be submitted in English, Spanish, or American Sign Language. Applicants may submit one single-authored and one co-authored abstract. All written abstracts should be submitted to the EasyChair link below. Abstracts in ASL should be uploaded to a file-sharing website and shared with hdls@unm.edu.
