This year’s sociolinguistics session at PLM, in keeping with the main conference theme, will look for theoretical approaches bridging sociolinguistics and other areas of research. This necessarily involves a commitment to the interdisciplinarity which may lead to creating a new quality rather than just combining theories or entering new research contexts. The organizers would like to encourage the presentation of new theoretical approaches and new contexts of research in the hope that the result will work against essentialism and ethnocentrism in sociolinguistic study.
We suggest that the following topics be addressed:
IDEOLOGIES OF LANGUAGE AND GENDER IN A CROSS-CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE
BRIDGING QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE RESEARCH IN SOCIOLINGUISTICS
BRIDGING SOCIOLINGUISTICS AND PSYCHOLINGUISTICS
COMMUNICATION ACROSS SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONTEXTS
NEW DISCOURSES: LINGUAGE IN PSYCHOTHERAPY
We will gladly consider other topics related to interdisciplinarity and sociolinguistics.
