Argument

The conference aims to foster discussion among sociologists, sociolinguists, and other social scientists about the relations between language and society. This edition of the Language and Society. Research Advances in Social Sciences international conference covers two main scopes.

The first scope is related to gender and children equality in liberal and conservative discourses. The purpose is to shed light on how these discourses inform about the preferences, the behaviors, and the representations toward: gender positions and what is expected or not of these positions; chiladren/parental positions; gendered children. This scope includes both the support and the resistance towards children's expected positions interlinked to their gender.

The second scope is based on RC25 core approach: looking at language rather than solely through language. All communications which look at language in this sense are welcome, as all theoretical and methodological frameworks that can be used to create sociological analyses of language. For instance, a non-exhaustive list of potential topics for this second scope is:

  • Language and power
  • Language in public and private spheres
  • Multilingualism and plurilingualism
  • Language and transnationalism
  • Language and migration
  • Language and global network
  • Language and identity
  • Language and intersectional positioning in public and private sphere
  • Language policies

To enhance knowledge dissemination beyond linguistic borders, scholars are welcome to present the literature they are using and which is not available in English.

English is the official communication language for the conference. However, scholars are welcome to show their visual presentation in another language (French or Spanish are the official languages of ISA).

RC 25 Language & Society is a research committee of the International Sociological Association. The objective of the Research Committee on Language and Society is to advance sociological knowledge concerning language in interaction and in systems of representation. Members are united by the desire to look at rather than through systems of communication.
