The Andean region, long known as a nexus of cultures and languages
bound up in a colonizing context, suffers asymmetrical relationships
of political,economic, sociocultural and linguistic power. The
primary focus of this symposium is on the interface between cultures,
languages and ideologies; its objective is to explore the ways in
which such interfaces and power dynamics have affected the linguistic
and social identities of not only indigenous groups but of the wider
societies as a whole, affecting national, regional, ethnic and
gendered identity formation.&nbsp; What do people do with their
repertoire of languages and identities? How do they constitute
their multiple ethnic, linguistic and national identities? How
do linguistic, political and social ideologies mediate cultural
patterning in terms of ethnic or gendered identities? These are some
of the questions we would like to address in this symposium, by
examining Andean identities and ideologies from interdisciplinary
perspectives such as sociolinguistic/ethnolinguistic,
cultural/anthropological (including linguistic anthropology),
literary, political, social semiotic, educational, and historical.
The ultimate goal of the symposium is to analyze the sociocultural and
sociolinguistic impacts of colonialism and postcolonialism in a
variety of contexts, historical and contemporary, concentrating on the
interaction between dominant and dominated languages and their
functions in identity construction. Proposed presentations should
consider the use and representation of language, gender or ethnicity
as symbols and constituents of individual, group, societal and
national identities. Proposals should also represent previously
unpublished work, as we are planning to select the best articles to
publish in a book. Some possible topics are listed below; other themes
that are related to any of these areas are also welcome.

* Ideologies of Linguistic and Social Differentiation
* Language and Political Economy
* Language Attitudes and Identities
* Language Policy/Planning from Multiple Perspectives 
* Languages and Cultures in Contact
* Bilingualism, Multilingualism and Other Forms of Linguistic
* Linguistic Rights and Indigenous Languages
* Language Shift, Maintenance and Revitalization
* Indigenous Languages in Mass Media, the Internet and Multimedia
* Rural and Urban Identities
* Transnational Nature of Languages and Identities
* Effects of Globalization on Language, Culture and Identity
* Language, Gender, and Race/Ethnicity
* Reproduction of Social and Linguistic Discrimination and
* Mestizaje and Socio-Political Ideologies in Local, National and
 Global Contexts

Given the interrelatedness and fluidity of all aspects of the
questions we wish to consider, it is neither easy nor necessarily
desirable to present a single perspective. Therefore, novel
perspectives and approaches to these or related topics are encouraged,
and may include interactions among two or more themes.
Particular approaches might include any one or a combination of the
following, or may take other forms that presenters find
relevant and useful:

a) narratives and testimonies; b) case studies; c) literary, sociopolitical,
 linguistic anthropological and semiotic analyses of language and culture;
 d) educational efforts; e) historical and contemporary approaches; f)
 social, literary or linguistic constructions of national/ethnic/gendered
 identities. Individual presentations should not exceed 20 minutes in
 length (8-10 typewritten pages, double spaced).

Proposals should be no longer than 600 words, and may be in any of the four
 official conference languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese or
 French. It should be composed of two parts:
(1) a cover page with the title of the presentation, the presenter's
 name, affiliation, preferred mailing address, telephone and fax if
 available, e-mail address, and any special audio-visual equipment that may
 be needed for the presentation. If the paper being presented was
 co-authored, the presenter's name should be listed first, and any
 co-authors listed alphabetically afterwards. Only the presenter's
 contact information is needed.
(2) the 600-word proposal with the title of the presentation, but no
 other identifying information. 

Proposal submissions should be received no later than December 30,
2002. Please plan your submission timing accordingly, especially if
you are sending your abstract from abroad, and submit presentation
proposals to the symposium coordinators as follows:
If you presently reside in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa or
Asia, send your proposal to Seraf�n M. Coronel-Molina at the address
listed at the beginning of this announcement. 

*Residents of Canada, the USA, Europe and Australia send your
 proposals to Linda L. Grabner-Coronel at the address listed at the

Proposals may be submitted via regular surface mail, email or fax. If

 attachment so that the above guidelines may still be followed. Early
 submission of abstracts is strongly encouraged, to expedite the decision
 making process. Submitters will be notified by email no later than the end
 of January 2003 of their acceptance in the symposium; submitters who do not
 have access to email will be notified by regular surface mail or fax.
