The 17th International Conference on Language and Social Psychology (ICLASP17) will be held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong between 22 to 25 June 2022.

ICLASP17:2022 welcomes scholars engaging in sociopsychological research and analyses concerning the role of language in society, including verbal and non-verbal communication. The conference attracts papers that specialize in the application and development of theories of language perceptions, attributions, and language use to understand group and individual behaviour in society.

While it has roots in the discipline of language sciences, IALSP also comprises scholars from diverse disciplines such as psychology, social psychology, sociology, communication, applied linguistics, anthropology, educational sciences, and philosophy. Biennially, IALSP convenes for a conference to create opportunities for the scholarly exchange ideas. Please visit the website of IALSP.

The areas of interest for language and social psychology (LSP) scholars is wide ranging and includes cross- and intercultural communication, intergroup communication, gender and sexuality, interdisciplinary and patient health discourse, intergenerational communication, the discourse of dementia, institutional talk, and social media among others.

The call for papers is open till 1 February 2022. Papers should be submitted by 1 February 2022 but no later than 15 Febuary 2022. As this is an online conference, the scheduling of papers across timezones is complex and we need sufficient time to plan the programme. All proposals received by 1 February 2022 will be reviewed, and corresponding authors will be notified of the status of their submissions by 1 March 2022. Proposals submitted by 15 February 2022 will be reviewed and notification will be sent by 15 March 2022.

Please note the below:

  • All submissions must include complete contact information for all authors, along with an indication of the corresponding author.
  • All submissions must be in English.
  • To make this an interactive ICLASP17, we want as many of the presentations as possible to be synchronous. To achieve this, we will be setting up time-zone dedicated presentations. However, we recognize that there is a need for flexibility and so there will also be pre-recorded asynchronous presentation options available. Our plan is to have synchronous individual papers and symposia and asynchronous pre-recorded blitz sessions.
