The specific emphasis of the conference on disrupting and recreating beliefs in language studies encourages new directions in research through interdisciplinary junctures that are fruitful and opportune. The conference will explore various facets of language and how one’s beliefs are disrupted and recreated by language or how one’s beliefs disrupt and recreate language. We view language as both shaping and being shaped by historical, political, social, and cultural contexts. Research on language from such perspectives has historically been marginalized as well as compartmentalized within artificially constructed academic disciplines. As such, a main objective of the conference is to bridge these arbitrary disciplinary territories and provide a forum for both theoretical and empirical research, from existing and emergent research methodologies, for exploring the relationships among language, power, discourses, and social practices.
