Funded PhD position in (Spanish) linguistics starting November 2021 at Ghent University

Funded PhD position in (Spanish) linguistics starting November 2021 at Ghent University.
Institution/Organization: Ghent University
Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Required Language(s): Spanish

The Department of (Spanish) Linguistics at Ghent University seeks to recruit a PhD student to work on a project entitled “Apologizing strategies in Spanish: a corpus-based approach”. The research will be carried out within the research group on Linguistic Meaning and Structure (GLIMS) that conducts corpus-based research in the field of cognitive-functional linguistics.

Short summary of the research project:
This projects fits within the vast body on politeness research, but focuses on one specific politeness strategy in Spanish, namely the speech act of apologizing. Although a large number of studies have already been dedicated to the study of politeness and speech acts in the English-speaking world, it is only until recently that it has emerged in the field of Hispanic studies. The attraction towards this category should not be surprising, since the act of apologizing constitutes a complex speech act that involves an ample gamut of both language-internal and language-external features. In order to account for this multidimensional nature of apologizing, the phenomenon will be studied from complementary perspectives, taking into account different dimensions of linguistic variation, including (1) a (micro)diachronic dimension, (2) a sociolinguistic dimension in contemporary Spanish and (3) a contrastive dimension. The set of near-synonyms will be described from several perspectives and at several analytical levels: pragmatic, semantic, morphosyntactic, and even prosodic ones.

Your Tasks:
– Collecting and analyzing data
– Writing a dissertation based on the research project
– Preparing individual and joint publications for national and international scientific journals
– Presenting your research at national and international conferences
– Assisting occasionally in the teaching activities at the department

What we are looking for:
– Master’s degree in (Spanish) Linguistics obtained with good grades before the start of the project.
– Fluent in Spanish and English; additional knowledge of (one or more) other languages is a plus.
– Good academic skills in English.
– Strong interpersonal and communication skills.
– You take initiative in searching for new research ideas and are not afraid to be critical about your own work.
– You are highly motivated, hardworking, flexible, able to face complex issues and you have an appropriate problem-solving attitude.
– You are able to take on responsibilities, work independently on your research but also as part of a team.

What we can offer you:
– This position after approximately four years of successful research results in a PhD title in Linguistics. We offer a full-time position for 4 years with yearly evaluations, in an exciting, dynamic and international research environment.
– As a UGent PhD fellow, you will enjoy a number of benefits, such as a wide range of training and education opportunities, possibility of flexible working hours, 38 days of paid leave, bicycle commuting reimbursement, eco-vouchers, reimbursement of commuting expenses by public transport etc. You will be allocated office space and a laptop, and receive funding for research activities like attending conferences abroad and organizing workshops and conferences. You will start on a salary of approximately 2.100 EUR/month.

– Starting date: November 1, 2021.

Fourth Annual Meeting – North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics (NARNiHS 2022)

Fourth Annual Meeting – North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics (NARNiHS 2022)
Online (Estados Unidos), del 7 al 11 de enero de 2022
(1ª circular)


Despite recent improvements in pandemic indicators in some parts of the world, travel restrictions and health concerns continue for many communities as of the summer of 2021. In light of these concerns, our NARNiHS 2022 Annual Meeting will be taking place as an entirely online event. This presents a great opportunity for scholars in historical sociolinguistics from all over the world to participate as presenters and/or attendees without the limitations imposed by international travel. We encourage our fellow historical sociolinguists and scholars from related fields from our global scholarly community (in addition to North America) to join us online for our Fourth Annual Meeting.

NARNiHS welcomes studies in all areas of historical sociolinguistics, which is understood as the application/development of sociolinguistic theories, models, and methods for the study of historical language variation and change over time, or more broadly, the study of the interaction of language and society in historical periods and from historical perspectives. Thus, a wide range of linguistic areas, subdisciplines, and methodologies easily find their place within the field, and we encourage submission of abstracts that reflect this broad scope.

Since NARNiHS is a Sister Society of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA), this meeting will partially overlap with the LSA 2022 Annual Meeting. The NARNiHS 2022 Annual Meeting, however, will be organized independently – please note that participation in the NARNiHS 2022 Annual Meeting does not grant attendance and/or participation rights to the LSA 2022 Annual Meeting.

Abstracts will be accepted for 20-minute presentations to be delivered “live” through an online video-conferencing platform.
Late abstracts will not be considered.

Abstracts will be evaluated on the following criteria:
● explicit discussion of which theoretical frameworks, methodological protocols, and analytical strategies are being applied or critiqued;
● sufficient (if brief) presentation of data sources and examples to allow reviewers a clear understanding of the scope and claims of the research;
● clear articulation of how the research advances knowledge in the field of historical sociolinguistics.

Abstracts should also be anonymized to allow for blind peer review. Failure to adhere to these criteria will increase the likelihood of non-acceptance.

Abstract Format Guidelines:
1) Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format.
2) Abstracts must fit on one standard 8.5×11 inch page, with margins no smaller than 1 inch and a font style and size no smaller than Times New Roman 12 point. All additional content (visualizations, trees, tables, figures, captions, examples, and references) must fit on a single (1) additional page. No exceptions to these requirements are allowed.
3) Anonymize your abstract. We realize that sometimes it is not possible to attain complete anonymity, but there is a difference between “inability to anonymize completely” (due to the nature of the research) and “careless non-anonymizing” (for example: “In Jones 2021, I describe…”). In addition, be sure to anonymize your PDF file (you may do so in Adobe Acrobat Reader by clicking on “File”, then “Properties”, removing your name if it appears in the “Author” line of the “Description” tab, and re-saving before submitting it). Please be aware that abstract file names might not be automatically anonymized by the system; do not use your name (e.g. Smith_Abstract.pdf) when saving your abstract in PDF format, rather, use non-identifying information (e.g. HistSoc4Lyfe_NARNiHS.pdf). Your name should only appear in the online form accompanying your abstract submission. Papers that are not sufficiently anonymized wherever possible (whether in the text of the abstract or in the metadata of the digital file) risk being rejected.

Edited volume on the (socio)linguistic aspects of reggaeton

CALL FOR PAPERS: Edited volume on the (socio)linguistic aspects of reggaeton

The consumption of Latin music in the American market is at an all-time high. Reggaeton, in particular, is a growing empire in the United States and, according to Rolling Stone magazine, a genre in which Latin pop’s gains are heavily concentrated. The frequent appearance of reggaeton hits in prestigious music charts like the Billboard Hot 100, and the dominance of the genre in platforms like Spotify and YouTube confirm its global popularity. Although two published volumes already focus on the genre, Rivera et al.’s “Reggaeton” (2009) and Rivera-Rideau’s “Remixing Reggaetón” (2015) analyze its relationship to the debates of broader topics like race, nation, gender, and sexuality from a variety of disciplines (e.g., sociology, ethnomusicology, journalism, and cultural studies). The volume proposed here will focus on aspects strictly examined through the lens of linguistic subdisciplines.

You are invited to submit an abstract of a paper for an edited volume tentatively titled Puerto Rican Spanish & Reggaeton: (Socio)linguistic Aspects. This project welcomes submissions on any discipline of linguistic analysis, and especially encourages original studies about any of these particular topics (or a combination of them):

(1) the frequency of use and covert prestige of Puerto Rican Spanish dialectal variants in reggaeton compared to other musical genres;
(2) the linguistic creation of a performative persona by Puerto Rican reggaeton singers;
(3) the projection of a performance identity by “reggaetoneros” from other Latin American countries, based on dialect leveling to that of top Puerto Rican reggaeton artists;
(4) the adoption of dialectal features of Puerto Rican Spanish by Latin American reggaeton fans;
(5) the attitudes towards Puerto Rican Spanish as directly associated to attitudes towards reggaeton;
(6) the lexical repertoire popularized by Puerto Rican reggaeton songs as well as the use of lexical borrowings from English;
(7) codeswitching instances in Puerto Rican reggaeton lyrics and codeswitching techniques in live performances;
( the rise in popularity of Colombian singers in a domain once exclusively dominated by Puerto Rican “reggaetoneros” and its implications associated to the ideologies that Colombian Spanish is the most prestigious Latin American variety of the language while Puerto Rican Spanish is a highly-stigmatized variety;
(9) the presence of Puerto Rican reggaeton in the linguistic landscape of US cities and metropolitan areas; and
(10) language and gender / (non-)inclusive language in Puerto Rican reggaeton songs.

To be considered for inclusion in this volume, all interested colleagues should submit an abstract of their original, unpublished manuscripts in both PDF file and Word to  by August 15, 2021. Questions can also be sent to this email address.

The editor will employ the double-blind peer review process for the papers. Both the author and the reviewer will remain anonymous throughout the review process. As the proposal will be submitted for consideration to Vernon Press, abstracts (and chapter manuscripts) may be in either English or Spanish.
