Attn lx researchers focused on Global Human Rights

The Department of Modern Languages & Global Studies at South Dakota State University is hosting an, “International Conference on Global Human Rights” on October 4-6. In order to complete a few panels, we would like to extend a further invitation for abstract submissions in linguistics and adjacent fields.


The conference itself is very interdisciplinary and for these specific panels we are open to all work that addresses language use or uses linguistic methodologies to examine any issue related to human rights. Please see the conference details linked above for further information regarding the conference schedule, keynote speakers, registration, and travel/accommodations.


The final deadline for abstract submissions is August 15, though will review abstracts on a rolling basis so early submissions are preferred. Please submit abstracts and/or questions directly to me at in order to speed up the process. We look forward to receiving your submissions!
