14th International Conference on Language and Social Psychology (ICLASP14)

19-22 June, 2014

The International Association of Language and Social Psychology (IALSP) aims to ensure the continuity and development of biennial international conferences (ICLASPs) that serve important functions of: exchange of ideas; establishing and extending contacts; facilitating collaborative research projects; sharing experiences among colleagues from a variety of disciplines and professions from around the world. The diversity of perspectives focusing on the intersection of language and social behavior and experience has been one of the most exciting and rewarding features of the earlier conferences (in Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, USA, UK & the Netherlands).

The next conference, ICLASP 14, will be held between 19th-22nd June, 2014, in the paradise that is Honolulu, Hawai`i. Local host the Department of Communicology of the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, and President of IALSP, Bernadette Watson, are working collaboratively to program a dynamic, multidisciplinary, and intercultural conference.

The 21st century will see the emergence of the global citizen, that citizen whose network of interpersonal connections spans the entire planet, and whose awareness of global events is motivated by those connections. Honolulu is the birthplace of the global citizen. It has one of the largest populations of pluriethnic individuals on the planet, people who trace their personal ethnic heritages to Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Holding ICLASP14 in Honolulu will allow us to stand in the present moment and look the future in the face.

In keeping with a focus on intercultural communication with an orientation toward the future, plenary speakers will include Dan Landis (US) and Min-Sun Kim (US). Additional plenary speakers and panels will be forthcoming.
