CALL FOR PAPERS

Dear colleagues,

The Departament de Filologia Anglesa i Alemanya at the University of
Valencia will host on 16-18 October, 2002, the First International
Seminar on Gender and Language (The Gender of Translation / The
Translation of Gender).

We would like to invite proposals for papers, workshops and posters on
all aspects of gender and language studies and, especifically, on all
theoretical and practical aspects of the interface between gender and
language studies and translation studies.

Topics for the Seminar will include, among others: 
- analysis of gender marking in translation.
- women, men, language and translation.
- gender bias in translation.
- translation as gender-specific cultural transfer.
- translating the body.
- re-translating gender-specific texts (e.g. the Bible).
- the challenge to grammatical gender in translation.
- the feminisation/masculinisation of translations.
- translators vs. translatresses.
- relation between women and translation: on the borders of meaning.
- feminist translation.
- the translation of identity.
- how sites of translation become gendered.
- authorship in women's and men's translations.
- sexism and translation.
- etc.

The Seminar is interdisciplinary: we invite work on diverse
languages and from a variety of fields of study, although with a
main focus on language and discourse.

Dates: 16, 17 & 18 October 2002.

Message 2: Language Variation within and across Language Families

Date: Wed, 10 Oct 2001 18:18:39 -0600
From: David Beck <dbeckualberta.ca>
Subject: Language Variation within and across Language Families

WSCLA 7 - Call for Papers

University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada
March 22 - 24, 2002

CALL FOR PAPERS

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together linguists doing
theoretical work on the indigenous languages of North, Central, and
South America. Papers in all core areas of linguistics (phonetics,
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) within any theoretical
framework will be considered, but we especially invite papers which
address the theme of this year's conference:

Convergence and Divergence: Language Variation within and across
Language Families

While the bulk of theoretical work in linguistics has by and large
relied on the convenient fiction that languages are stable, uniform
synchronic systems that are consistent and self-contained across
communities of speakers, linguists working on the languages of the
Americas-the majority of which are unwritten and have no normative or
"standard" form-have often been confronted with a startling degree of
variation within what speakers consider to be a single language.
Conversely, researchers working in well-established linguistic areas
or Sprachb=FCnde such as the Northwest Coast have found that what are
patently different and genetically unrelated languages share a
tremendous number of phonological and grammatical features.
