The University of Texas at Austin is hosting the 49th meeting of New Ways of Analyzing Variation as a virtual conference. This year's theme is
Diversity in Variation
Through talks and workshops, we plan to highlight communities, research questions, and methods that reflect the full diversity of language variation studies.
Our plenary speakers are
Marlyse Baptista (University of Michigan),
Amelia Tseng (American University),
Tracey Weldon (University of South Carolina), and
Bernd Kortmann (University of Freiburg).
Their work advances the field in non-traditional ways. - Although submissions may address any and all areas of language variation and change, for NWAV 49 we particularly welcome proposals which highlight:
Variation in less studied communities
Combination of multiple methods
