Corpora for Language and Aging Research 5


09-11 Marzo 2022

Anchorage, Alaska, USA

Call Deadline: 04-Oct-2021



The CLARe (Corpora for Language and Aging Research) conferences are dedicated to bringing researchers together who are interested in language and aging research and contributing to a more nuanced perspective on the connections between language and aging. We hope to stimulate contributions that help to better identify the position of language and aging research in the broader context of linguistics, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, and psycho- and neurolinguistics. In addition, our aim is to establish cooperation with fields such as gerontology, psychology, and sociology, as well as nursing, social work, and economics. When it comes to aging, an interdisciplinary approach is mandatory. 


CLARe5 will be held in Anchorage, Alaska 9–11 March 2022, with the option of participation in person or virtually via livestreaming. The conference follows previous events held in Louvain-la-Neuve (2014 and 2015), Berlin (2017), and Helsinki (2019). Due to the location and demographics of Alaska, we have chosen aging in the context of rurality and indigeneity as the central theme for the conference, though submissions dealing with any aspect of language and aging from any methodological or theoretical perspective are welcome. 


Plenary addresses will be offered by Cécile Fougeron (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique & Université Sorbonne-Nouvelle), Jordan Lewis (University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth), and Suzanne Evans Wagner (Michigan State University).
