Message 2: Language policy in China: Theory and practice

Date: Tue, 26 Jun 2001 13:06:31 -0600
From: zhou minglang <Minglang.ZhouColorado.EDU>
Subject: Language policy in China: Theory and practice


I am organizing one or two AAS panel(s) on "Language policy in China: Theory
and practice". To my knowledge, this topic has not been covered at AAS at
least since the 1980s.

The panel (s) shall cover the following topics (at least):

a) the theoretic basis of China's language policy;

b) how China's language policy affects the relationship between the majority
 language and minority languages (in government business, education, media,
 business, and everyday life);

c) how it affects the relationship between Putonghua and Chinese dialects
 (in government business, education, media, business, and everyday life); and

d) how it affects the relationship among minority languages (in government
 business, education, media, business, and everyday life).

An AAS panel normally consist of a chair, four presenters, and one discussant
- maximally six people. If there is sufficient interest, we can organize 
two panels: one on theory and practice in Chinese dialect communities and
one on theory and practice in minority communities.

Deadline: July 20, 2001 ( I will put the panel(s) together and mail before
 AAS deadline--August 3, 2001)

Send me (zhoumcolorado.edu) an abstract of maximally 250 words in MS word
 format by email, if you are interested in a presentation of your research.

Send me (zhoumcolorado.edu) a short academic biography (500 words) with
 focus on your research interest and publications, if you are interested in
 chairing a panel or being a discussant.

I have done some research on the panel topic for a while and have a good and
 updated bibliography. I can email it if anyone is interested.

At the AAS conference, we will discuss how to pursue the project furhter, as
 a book project or as a special issue in an appropriate journal.
