SECOL 2023 Call for Papers

The 90th Southeastern Conference on Linguistics (SECOL) will be held in Oxford, Mississippi at the Inn at Ole Miss, March 9 – 11, 2023. The theme is "Envisioning Linguistics: SECOL in 2023"

SECOL, founded 1969, is the oldest regional linguistic association in the United States. As we carry our field into the coming decade, what innovative connections will we champion? What established areas of research need our continued focus? We invite papers from all subdisciplines as we envision Linguistics in 2023.

We invite abstracts of up to 500 words, excluding title and references, for 20-minute presentations. We also invite 90-minute panels, with a main panel abstract of 500 words along with 300-word individual paper abstracts. Please indicate in your title that you want to submit for the special Montgomery panel. Authors may submit up to two abstracts, one individual and one joint. Abstracts will be subjected to double-blind review, so author names should not appear anywhere on abstracts.

Abstract submission opens October 5, 2022. Electronic submission of abstracts (.pdf or Word document) will be managed through Easy Abstracts.;

All submissions must be received by 11:59 pm (EST) on February 1, 2023. Questions may be addressed to the local host.
