Call for Submissions

Hi all,

We are looking for papers that engage with the topic of Linguistic Geography; please consider joining in! Here's our abstract for the sessions:
...
Language is often shaped by space, and our ideas of space are in turn conveyed through language. The interaction between the two remains relevant to scholars from a variety of disciplines including cultural geography, linguistic anthropology, sociology, and political science. This interdisciplinary session examines different ways in which landscape and language are connected, methods for analyzing their relationship, and the impact they have on our understanding of the world.

Topics include language and space, linguistic landscapes (language use in public spaces), language and power, ethnophysiography, toponymy, dialectology, linguistic cartography, and the representation of places in discourse. Papers that engage with the conference theme of Geographies of Human Rights are encouraged.
...
Please reach out to Greg Niedt at gjn23@drexel.edu with your abstract if you are interested in presenting in the 2019 sessions; feel free to also disseminate the CFP to anyone you know who might be interested.

Cheers,
Greg Niedt and Kirsten Helgeson, Co-Organizers
