Meeting Description:

2006 Dene Languages Conference: 'Land and Language'

The Dene (Athabaskan) Languages Conference brings together linguists, speakers, educators and policy makers from across the Dene/Athabaskan region. Over the past two decades this conference has become the principal forum in which members of geographically distant, but culturally and intellectually related, Athabascan communities can compare notes and learn from each other.

Second Call for Papers
Dene (Athabaskan) Languages Conference

The Organizing Committee is now requesting proposals for presentations at the 2006 conference. We are looking for presentations on any topic relating to Dene (Athabaskan) languages, including language teaching and learning, language documentation, language and culture, community programs, linguistics, language revitalization, and curriculum development.

Presenters will be assigned 30 minutes or 60 minutes for their talks. Please prepare presentations of 20 minutes or 45 minutes, plus 10 or 15 minutes for discussion. If you would like a longer presentation time, please contact the Program Coordinator.

The theme for the conference will be Land and Language. Proposals that speak to this theme are encouraged, but we do not want to limit proposals to this theme only.

Send proposals to Leslie Saxon, Program Coordinator. The deadline for proposals is Monday May 1, 2006. Proposals by e-mail (.doc, .rtf, or .pdf format only), fax, or mail are encouraged. Please use .pdf format if your text includes special fonts.
