The 44th GLOW Colloquium will be held fully online, synchronously over three days, April 15–17, 2021, and organized by the GLOW Board.

For 2021, we are planning a synchronous event where GLOW-minded linguists can meet virtually and have GLOW-minded discussions in the most conducive format, given the circumstances. For this reason, we have also taken the decision to propose an entirely new flavour of main session talk, to provoke high level discussion and theorizing, and to have something different to offer in 2021: targeted collaborative debates. Targeted collaborative debates are joint talks that present contrasting analytical proposals to a particular concrete empirical problem, in any area of linguistics. Traditional research contributions will also be presented and discussed in synchronous and asynchronous online formats, including in a synchronous flash talk session. Read more about the format of GLOW 44. Abstracts for both types of contributions are due December 15. See the Call for Papers.
