LSA issues call for Organized Sessions

March 21, 2019

The Program Committee of the LSA is accepting proposals for Organized Sessions to be held at the LSA's 2020 Annual Meeting, which will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana from January 2-5.  An Organized Session is an excellent opportunity to present a group of similarly-focused presentations on a diverse array of topics and in a wide variety of formats. In addition to individual LSA members, Committees and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are encouraged to submit proposals on topics falling under their purview, and proposals are particularly welcome from women and underrepresented ethnic minorities, and on linguistic topics relating to the Southeastern United States in general and New Orleans in particular. In addition, proposals related to theUnited Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages are also particularly encouraged. 

The submission deadline for "regular" organized session proposals is May 15, 2018.  The deadline for proposals that build upon themes emerging from the Davis LSA Institute is July 17.  For more information about submitting an organized session, click here.
