About the Theme

Peace is often defined as freedom from oppression, the end of conflict or even harmony in relationships. Whatever the definition, the word peace means different things to different people. Peace is an important concept that also connects to the focus of ISLS: the intersections and meeting places of language and power, identity, and social justice. It is in this light that we invite proposal submissions that specifically address some aspect of this focus and its intersection with the concept of peace.

The ISLS conference is a venue for individuals from all disciplines to come together and discuss language from a critical, interdisciplinary lens (language use, language learning, language teaching, critical language studies, to name a few). To that end, we encourage submissions from across fields of study where their work connects language to peace.
In order to provide a guide and structure to the theme, the following represent possible key words (called strands and elaborated below) to describe your proposed session.


Discourse & Peace
Language & Peace in the Professions & Workplace
Language, Peace & K-12 Education
Language, Peace & Higher Education/Adult Education
Language Policy & Peace
Language, Culture & Peace
