The Departments of Slavic Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the Universität Regensburg are pleased to announce the
Second International ''Perspectives on Slavistics'' Conference
The conference will take place in Regensburg, Germany, September 21-24, 2006.
The goals of the conference are to encourage the study of Slavic languages and literatures and to establish connections among scholars working in these areas. There will be three parallel sections, two focusing on literature and cultural studies, the third one reserved for linguistics. The linguistics section will have the honour to host the 6th Annual Conference of the Slavic Cognitive Linguistics Association.
The following keynote lectures will be presented:
-Language Mixing and Language Separation in Bilingual Russian-German Children (Tanja Anstatt)
-Features: Slavonic and Typological Perspectives (Greville Corbett)
-Speaking from the Inside: Stories of Everyday Life in Russia (Catriona Kelly)
-On the Discourse of National Identity in Russian Culture (Renata von Maydell)
-Fundamentals of Ego-Linguistics. Self-reference, Self-centred Speech Acts, and Related Phenomena in Contemporary Russian (Daniel Weiss)
-Fiction and Individuality (Georg Witte)
Submissions from any scholar working on Slavic languages or literatures are welcomed, including those in Slavic departments, as well as in specialized linguistics or literature departments. We particularly want to encourage young scholars to participate in this conference. Papers will be considered on topics relating to the diachronic or synchronic study of Slavic languages and literatures from any theoretical perspective. Each paper will be allowed thirty minutes (including 10 minutes for discussion). The deadline for submissions is April 15th 2006 (abstract specifications see below).
Presentations should be in English in order to open the conference up to researchers working on non-Slavic languages and literatures.
The participation fee will be 50 euros (25 for graduate students and passive participants), to be paid in advance. Detailed information on payment options & deadlines and hotel accommodation will be provided by May 2006. The participation fee covers the abstract booklet, other conference materials, refreshments and snacks. A limited number of participants from economically disadvantaged countries may be allowed free participation upon application. Please include a motivated application for free participation when sending in your abstract. In assigning waivers priority will be given to graduate students and non-tenured scholars.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us for further details or questions (pos2(at)slav.fak12.uni-muenchen.de).
The abstracts should not exceed 500 words (plus an additional page for tables, graphs and references, if necessary). Please use MS Word for Windows and Times New Roman or MS Word for Apple and TimesCE or Unicode text. Make sure to use the international transcription in case you work on languages with a Cyrillic alphabet. Your abstract should present a hypothesis and outline your plan for defending that hypothesis, i.e. it should specify research question(s), an approach/method to the data, and obtained results. Each abstract will be anonymously reviewed by independent reviewers.
Please, send your name, address, affiliation and the title of your abstract by e-mail. The text of the abstract should be sent in an attached file. This file should not include the author's name. Submit your abstract to pos2(at)slav.fak12.uni-muenchen.de by April 15th 2006. Notifications of the Organizing Committee's decisions will be sent out by May 31st 2006.

We are pleased to announce the First Newcastle Postgraduate Conference in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics in association with the University of Durham, sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
The success of the Durham Postgraduate Linguistics Conference over the past decade, and the recent amalgamation of Durham’s linguistics department with Newcastle University’s School of English, has led to the creation of a new conference based in Newcastle. This one-day conference is designed to give linguistics postgraduates an opportunity to present and discuss their research in an informal and intellectually stimulating setting.
Professor Bernard Comrie (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology) will be giving a guest lecture at this year’s conference on ‘Language and Genes’.
We invite linguistics postgraduate students to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations of their research on ANY area of linguistics, theoretical or applied. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday, 17th March.
Abstract submission guidelines are available at the conference website: pglinguistics2006.ncl.ac.uk. Abstracts should be sent to pgconflingncl.ac.uk. Email submissions only, please (Microsoft Word/PDF format only).
More information can be found at the conference website: pglinguistics2006.ncl.ac.uk. If you have any queries, please email: pgconflingncl.ac.uk.
