Call for Papers
We invite abstracts for papers on the theme of “Seniors, foreign caregivers, families, institutions” from the English linguistics point of view, as well as from other perspectives that pay close attention to the linguistic, social, economic and ethical aspects regarding the ageing population, those who assist them, their families and the institutions/organisations that offer services for them. Proposals with a multidisciplinary focus will be especially welcome.
Papers will be 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion, and we expect to publish a selection of them, following double-bind peer-review.
Abstracts (ca. 300 words plus max 6 references) should be sent as Word file to email@example.com no later than 31 December 2018. Notifications of acceptance will be issued by 31 January 2019.
The event will be held at the University of Insubria, Varese, Italy.
The registration fee is 100 Euros. More information will be provided in future circulars and on the conference website at www.uninsubria.eu/seniors2019
