SAMLA Linguistics Session
SAMLA Annual Convention
November 4-6, 2011
Language both relays and responds to the role of power in modern society as evidenced through the linguistic analysis of both spoken and written language both synchronically and diachronically. The theme of the conference is ‘Power and Poetry in the Modern World’.
Call for Papers:
With the themes of the conference in mind, the SAMLA linguistics session welcomes submissions of proposals on the connection and role of language to power, poetics, and the modern world, inviting papers from all linguistic disciplines that deal with the intersections of language and power and language and the modern world. Topics may include but are not limited to: language change in modern society; language and power (social/political/economic); and language, gender, and power.
Abstracts of 300 words (excluding references) in .doc or pdf format should be emailed to rchildscoastal.edu by June 15, 2011.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
