Second Call for Participants

A two-day international Colloquium organised by SLP, to debate
questions related to the dissemination, expansion and revival of the
Portuguese language in the World, will be held at Oporto on 18-19
October 2002.

This Colloquium will exploit and canvass those questions as a
contemporary debate on language. The aim is not only the historical
and theoretical problems of the Portuguese language in the world, but
to analyse its practical modalities in conjunction with other
cultural, historical and linguistic Lusophone communities, as a means
of promoting and drawing near different peoples and cultures.

The Colloquium will have the participation of representatives of
Portuguese-speaking countries, in all its varieties, as well as
Portuguese-speaking people from any other country, in order to rethink
the debate on Lusophonia.

Areas/Sub themes:
1. Language, Multimedia & Mass media
2. Curricular Development
3. Citizenship and Political Participation
4. 	Translation and Culture (Intercultural and Transcultural),
	Intercultural studies
5. Cultural Diversity

We aim to receive as many proposals as possible covering geographically and
thematically the widest possible range. We aim at a globalising and
comprehensive picture of the theme. Apart from individual proposals, we
might consider, if its number so justifies, the inclusion of a round table
discussion.

All proposals should be addressed to the Executive Secretary,
specifying the sub theme, and including an abstract not exceeding 300
words, in electronic format (MSWord preferred, any version). All
proposals will be considered, and a selection of presented papers may
be included in a future issue of Revista da Lengua, da
Sociedade de Lengua Portuguesa.

If you are interested in receiving further information on this
Conference or if you want to make a 20-minute presentation, please

Message 2: The Grammar of Gender - call for papers

Date: Fri, 21 Jun 2002 15:42:00 +0200
From: Hans-Olav Enger <h.o.engerinl.uio.no>
Subject: The Grammar of Gender - call for papers

You are hereby invited to participate in the seminar "The Grammar of
Gender"/"Genus i grammatikken", which will take place in Oslo Thursday
28. November.

Invited plenary speaker is Professor Oesten Dahl, Stockholm.

The seminar will be open for talks on aspects of gender in grammar and
lexicon. The languages of the conference are Scandinavian and
English. The talks may last for 40 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for
discussion.

Abstract should be sent to me electronically before 1
September. Abstracts should be anonymous, and should be no longer than
1 page (A4), including references. Talks may be rejected on the basis
of abstracts.

We cannot help financing any participants. All we can do, is book
rooms at a hotel that is relatively reasonably priced (Hotell
Gyldenleve), for participants who ask us to do so.

Best wishes,
Hans-Olav Enger

(Post. doc. fellow, University of Oslo)
