if you're planning to submit a paper/poster abstract to any of the many conferences within the next few weeks, here's a mini-forum to post titles, name conferences, and ask questions about another's proposed research.
i'm bound to the states for monetary reasons, but i'll be submitting to the university conferences with socioling or linganth plenaries - the chicago linguistics conference (Marianne Mithun) and the berkeley linguistics conference (Walt Wolfram). i'll also submit to the american culture association's southwest division, with this year's language and society focus.
i'm also hidously curious where other CMC-abstracts are being sent. you know, strength in numbers.
I'm contemplating potential abstracts, but nothing concrete yet.
i heard today that the call for SALSA papers is coming up soon.
you guys are welcome to stay with me if you want to come to SALSA. we have bunk beds!
i'm sure that my wife would be willing to expose you to this last, marginalized variety of salsa though.
and is mary bucholtz going to be there this year? i think she'd be really interested in the kind of work we do.
(man, this blog might actually finally force me to get a blog and not just an LJ, even though I'm a big LJ fan.)
Here's the running list of presentations at AAA with a CMC focus. Mine is listed as 8 p.m. because I've got some conflicting info, so hopefully that will sort itself out soon.
than i realized that rae = rachel. welcome to the flock.
Yes, sorry. Nicknames and professional names. rae = rachel = infinitivesplit, they are all one in the same.
said social network site frequently has offline meetings internationally, and you see constantly see name tags with screen names on them. and people use them. and it freaks me out a little. it interests me academically something awful, but it definitely freaks me out a little.
