Interactions, Methods and Positions

The CLARe 4 conference in Helsinki 2019 follows the conferences in University of Louvain in 2014 and 2015 and FU Berlin in 2017. The aim of the conference is to gather researchers together who are interested in the study of language and aging research. The conference aims to provide an arena for empirical approaches and innovative methods to gather language data from older adults. We want to stimulate contributions that help to better identify the position of language and aging research in the broader context of linguistics and sociolinguistics. Interdisciplinary perspectives are especially welcome. Our keynote speakers are: Christina Samuelsson (Linköping University), Sylvie Ratté (ETS Montréal), and Frans Gregersen (University of Copenhagen).
