The Lavender Languages & Linguistics conference series has a rich history of examining language use and representation in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and/or queer life, as well as language and sexuality more broadly. In April 2017, LavLang will be held in the UK for the first time, having been hosted annually by American University (Washington, D.C.) since 1993. We anticipate that, by bringing LavLang24 to Europe, more students and scholars with an interest in language and sexuality will be able to join our conversation.
Established in 1783 by the Treaty of Paris, the border between Canada and the United States is considered the longest international border in the world. What makes this border unique (unlike the border between the United States and Mexico) is the fact that it can be considered the "longest undefended border" due to the rather low level of security that maintains this boundary. Like this undefended border, the border between Canadian and American literature has been historically misunderstood. It is through review and use of the theory of liminality, as defined by Van Gennep in 1909 and Turner in the 1960s, that one must begin to discuss and define the geographical boundaries between Canada and American literature.

"Security is a derivative concept; it is meaningless in itself. To have any meaning, security necessarily presupposes something to be secured; as a realm of study it cannot be self-referential." (Krauss & Williams, 1997: ix)
