We sincerely regret to announce that, due to the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent uncertainty surrounding travel plans and campus closures, we have decided to cancel SALSA XXVIII. This was a difficult choice to make, and we hope to see you at next year's conference. We will still put together a proceedings of accepted talks, so please stay tuned for information about that.


The Symposium About Language and Society, Austin (SALSA) is an annual symposium promoting the study of language and its intersection with society. Originally created through the joint efforts of students from the Linguistics, Anthropology, and Communication Studies Departments at The University of Texas, SALSA has developed into an interdisciplinary conference with contributions from various fields, including foreign language education, educational psychology, media studies, and language departments, including French & Italian, Spanish & Portuguese, German, and English. Our conference proceedings appear in special editions of Texas Linguistic Forum.
