Meeting Description:

The 15th Sociolinguistics Symposium, Europe's premier international
conference on language in society, will return to Newcastle (UK) after
18 years, in April 2004. It will be hosted by the University of
Newcastle upon Tyne, the University of Durham, University of
Northumbria, and the University of Sunderland.

The Sociolinguistics Symposia began in the 1970s by a group of
UK-based sociolinguists who saw the need for a fairly informal forum
to discuss research findings and to debate theoretical and
methodological issues concerning language in society. It has since
grown into a large, international conference, typically attracting
400-500 participants. Normally, it takes place once every two years in
a UK university but sometimes in continental Europe too. In 1986, the
University of Newcastle upon Tyne hosted the 6th Sociolinguistics
Symposium. We are very pleased that it will return in 2004.

Themes: Culture, Contact, and Change

Proposals that address the themes of the conference (Culture, Contact,
and Change) are especially welcome; however, the organisers welcome
papers on any aspect of sociolinguistics.

We are currently accepting proposals for thematic panels (workshops and
colloquia), papers, and posters.

Keynote Speakers:

Peter Auer (University of Freiburg)
Jenny Cheshire (Queen Mary, University of London)
Jane Hill (University of Arizona)
Lesley Milroy (University of Michigan)
Shana Poplack (University of Ottawa)


Deadline for thematic panel proposals (workshops and colloquia) has been
EXTENDED until 2nd March 2003.

Deadline for poster and paper proposals: 1st April 2003.
