The 51st Conference on New Ways of Analyzing Variation
The conference theme of NWAV51 is “Variation in the World’s Languages”
NWAV is an annual academic conference on linguistic variation attracting researchers and students conducting scientific research into patterns of language variation, the study of language change in progress, and the interrelationship between language and society.
NWAV51 is hosted by Queens College (QC) and the Research Institute for the Study of Language in Urban Society (RISLUS).
We encourage submissions addressing language contact, multilingualism, and variation in different domains across many languages, including those that have been understudied. Moreover, given the interdisciplinary nature of RISLUS, that goal also includes expanding the variationist enterprise methodologically and theoretically.
Location: Queens College/CUNY
Theme: Variation in the World’s Languages
Date: October 13-15, 2023
Call for Abstracts: We invite abstract submissions for papers and posters! Quantitative and qualitative work on variation in any linguistic domain is welcomed, especially submissions that align with the conference theme (Variation in the World’s Languages): variation in bi-multilingualism; cross-linguistic variation; variation in understudied languages.
Submission Deadline: May 31, 2023
