Slurring Terms Across Languages (STAL-24) is an international and interdisciplinary workshop whose primary aim is to gather work on slurs from languages that have been seldom discussed in the recent philosophical and semantic literature, and in particular, from sign languages and non-Indo-European languages. It aims to bring to light new empirical data and uncover novel interesting phenomena that may have the potential to challenge current theories of slurs. We search for theoretical and empirical studies of slurs from such languages, comparisons with English slurs, as well as wider cross-linguistic approaches. We also welcome developments of extant theories in application to the new data or previously neglected phenomena.
