2nd Call for Papers
Sociolinguistics Summer School 5
28-31 July 2014
University College Dublin, Ireland

Deadline: Friday 18th April, 2014

The deadline for receipt of abstracts for Sociolinguistics Summer School 5 (SSS5) has been extended. The event is an opportunity for graduate students or early career researchers in any area of sociolinguistics to attend workshops, seminars and lectures with leaders in the field, as well as present their on-going research to peers. Each day of the summer school will have a theme based on the research of an invited speaker, who will deliver a plenary lecture and a practical workshop, after which student presentations will be held.

The following themes and invited speakers are confirmed:

Language and the Media
Dr. Helen Kelly Holmes, University of Limerick

Language and Gender
Dr. Robert Lawson, Birmingham City University

Minority Languages and Language Planning
Professor Diarmait Mac Giolla Chríost, Cardiff University

Quantitative Methods in Sociolinguistics
Dr. Daniel Ezra Johnson, Lancaster University

300-word abstracts should be emailed to by 5PM on Friday 18th April. Submissions on any sociolinguistic topic are welcome. Please indicate if you wish to make an oral or poster presentation.

Registration for SSS5 will open in May. The registration fee will not exceed €100. Every effort will be made to make SSS5 as affordable as possible to its participants.

Further details will be posted here, to the Facebook page Sociolinguistics Summer School 5, and to Twitter @SSS5Dublin2014. Enquiries can be made to
