Final Call for papers

Second North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC2)

The Linguistics Program at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec
will host the Second North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC2) from
April 26-28th, 2002.

We are pleased to announce that the following phonologists have all
accepted invitations to the conference:

Patricia Keating (UCLA)
John McCarthy (UMass)
David Odden (Ohio)
Carole Paradis (Laval)
Douglas Pulleyblank (UBC)

The Concordia Linguistics Students Association will be hosting a talk
entitled "We don't memorize words" by Alec Marantz of MIT on the
evening of Thursday, April 25th, so conference participants will want
to arrive early enough to attend this special event.

The theme of the conference is "I-Phonology", in the sense of
"I-language" discussed, among other places, in Chomsky's _Knowledge of
Language_ (1986). We thus encourage submission of empirical and formal
investigations into the nature of individual I-phonologies, as well as
into the nature of the human phonological faculty.

Students are encouraged to submit abstracts. Abstract length is not
limited--complete papers may be submitted for evaluation. Papers may
be submitted and presented in French or English. Accepted papers will
be allotted 40 minutes, including discussion time. Papers not
accepted as talks will be considered for the Poster Sessions.

Please indicate in your message if you do NOT want to be considered
for a poster presentation. Abstracts must be submitted electronically

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is December 1, 2001. Registration
information will be provided after the announcement of the program in

Preferred formats in decreasing order are pdf, ps, plain text, rtf,
WORD (Mac or Windows), WordPerfect (Linux, Mac or Windows). Word and
Wordperfect users should use no other phonetics fonts than SIL Doulos
(available at ).
If you make a ps or pdf file under Windows or Mac, please verify its
integrity before sending it. Do not send any compressed files--make
sure your mail program does not compress automatically.

Further information will soon be available at

 "Knowledge and Discourse: Speculating on disciplinary futures"
 A Call for Papers: Revised deadline: 30th November, 2001

Dear Colleagues,

The English Centre at Hong Kong University, with the Language Centre,
is organising a follow-up conference to our 1st Knowledge & Discourse
conference back in June 1996, entitled: "Knowledge and Discourse:
Speculating on disciplinary futures" [KD2 for short!] Scheduled
themes and plenary speakers are: Universities and knowledge production
Steve Fuller (Warwick, UK) Critical approaches to literacy Roz Ivanic
(Lancaster, UK) Voices and culture in the classroom Claire Kramsch
(Berkeley, USA) Natural, social and virtual worlds Bruno Latour
(Paris, France) Discourses of popular culture Gregory Lee (Lyon,
France) Disciplinary discourses and practices Paul Prior (U-C,
Illinois, USA) Workplace discourses and practices Srikant Sarangi
(Cardiff, UK) Gender, ethnicity and identity tba

The conference will also feature pre-conference workshops and
conversations featuring plenary speakers, and a debate between Steve
Fuller and Bruno Latour. We are aiming at an interactive conference,
featuring discussion sessions after each plenary, and at the end of
each trio of parallel session papers or colloquia [we are accepting
proposals for 3-paper or 6-paper colloquia]. All discussions will be
designed to address key questions or issues nominated by the speakers.

We hope you will circulate this Call for Papers to your colleagues and
others in your professional network, and to any discussion groups to
which you subscribe. For more information, please check the
attachment, or if that fails to download, visit the conference website
directly at: The site will be regularly updated,
notably with information on the pre-conference workshops (in
November), selected abstracts (from February), and the program
schedule (April). We hope to see you in June, 2002, here in Hong
