Conference 2020

Language and Society

We wish to welcome everyone to Waikato, in person or via online presence, in February 2021. For those who can make it, if travel is permitted at that time, we hope to see you in person. However, the conference remains open to those who can not make it to Hamilton, NZ in person, and we will provide the option for online presentations. With the various Covid-related changes this year, we decided to delay the conference to our New Zealand summer, in February 2021, in order to allow for extra time and planning and submitting research.


A call for papers is now out on Easy Chair.

Due date for abstract submission is 1 November 2020.

Abstract notification date is 14 December 2020.

Conference dates 10-12 February 2021.


For any queries about the conference, please contact

Find us also on the Sociolinguistic Events Calendar.


Take care and stay safe, and we look forward to hosting you in the might Waikato,


Julie Barbour, Nicola Daly, Jemma König & Andreea Calude,
