CFP - Language in the (New) Media: Technologies and Ideologies

International Conference

Language in the (New) Media: Technologies and Ideologies

Thursday 03 to Sunday 06 September 2009
University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA

Interactive announcement (with links): http://www.com.washington.edu/lim/

**Keynote speakers**

. Naomi Baron, American University, USA
. Sally Johnson, University of Leeds, England . Jannis Androutsopoulos, Kings College London, England . Theo van Leeuwen, University of Technology Sydney, Australia

**Background**
This is the third in a series of conferences organized around the role of the media in relation to the representation, construction and/or production of language. The first two conferences were held at Leeds University,
England: in
2005, "Language in the Media: Representations, Identities, Ideologies" and, in 2007, "Language Ideologies and Media Discourse: Texts, Practices, Policies". In 2009, the conference will be leaving Leeds and coming to Seattle.

**Conference theme**
We invite you to submit abstracts for papers which explore the representation, construction and/or production of language through the technologies and ideologies of new media - the digital discourse of blogs, wikis, texting, instant messaging, internet art, video games, virtual worlds, websites, emails, podcasting, hypertext fiction, graphical user interfaces, and so on.
Of equal interest are the ways that new media language is metalinguistically represented, constructed and/or produced in print and broadcast media such as newspapers and television..

With this new media theme in mind, the 2009 conference will continue to prioritize papers which address the scope of the AILA Research Network on "Language in the Media" by examining the following types of contexts/issues:

. standard languages and language standards; . literacy policy and literacy practices; . language acquisition; . multilingualism and cross-/inter-cultural communication; . language and communication in professional contexts; . language & class, dis/ability, race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality and age; . media representations of speech, thought and writing; . language and education; . political discourse; . language, commerce and global capitalism.

**Abstract submission**
Please submit abstracts for papers (20 minutes plus 10 for discussion) by email to lim2009@u.washington.edu no later than Thursday 26 February 2009.
Abstracts should include a title, your contact details (name, mailing address, email) and a description of your paper (250 -350 words). The conference committee will begin reviewing abstract submissions immediately after the deadline; notification of acceptance will be Thursday 19 March.
(Please send your abstract as a Word document or in the body of your email.)

The conference planning committee is also arranging an optional program of tours and activities for Sunday 06 September. A business meeting for the AILA Network will also be scheduled for the Sunday morning.

The final deadline for presenter registration will be Thursday 23 July in order to be included in the final program.

**Publication**
Conference co-organizer Crispin Thurlow is planning to edit a volume provisionally titled "Language in the New Media: Technologies and Ideologies" and is in discussion with the editors of the Oxford University Press' series Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics. His goal would be to publish this volume in 2011. To this end, Crispin would like to receive good quality, previously unpublished chapters which may or may not be based on papers presented at the conference. Contributions should be of no more than 7,000 words in length and should conform to APA format, please. More information about the scope of this volume will be made available nearer to the conference; in the meantime, the anticipated deadline for submission of chapters for review will be 31 January 2010.
