Meeting Description: This spring, the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) will be hosting the first ever Conference on Central Asian Languages and Linguistics (ConCALL) at Indiana University during the weekend of May 16 & 17.

This first annual ConCALL is being established as a professional development conference for linguists and language educators specializing in the languages of the Central Asian region, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region, a diverse range of languages such as Azerbaijani, Dari, Kazakh, Mongolian, Pashto, Persian, Tajiki, Tibetan, Turkish, Tuvan, Uyghur, Uzbek, and more!

The goal of the conference is to bring together professionals across the fields to focus on research into how these specific languages are represented formally, as well as acquired by second/foreign language learners and also to present research driven teaching methods.

The theme of this first annual conference is 'Building a Bond: Strengthening the Central Asian Language Community'.

Keynote Speakers Include:
Jaklin Kornfilt, Department of Linguistics, Syracuse University
Jorge Hankamer, Department of Linguistics, University of California, Santa Cruz
