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.

This is the first call for papers for the 2006 Dene Languages Conference,
which will take place on 13-15 June 2006 in Yellowknife, NWT. The later originally proposed dates we considered were impossible because of the need to book the Explorer Hotel.

We are asking for participation by speakers in 30-minute and 60-minute
time blocks. The theme of the conference will be ''Land and Language,''
and we hope you will be interested in contributing and attending.

Later on, the organizing committee will put out more information about
local arrangements. I don't yet know what arrangements have been made
with the Explorer Hotel. Here is its website:

June in Yellowknife isn't really predictable for weather, but we might
expect to find the wild roses out. Please contact me (saxonuvic.ca) if
you have any questions about program information. Looking forward to
seeing you in Yellowknife!

The deadline for proposals is Monday May 01, 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. Send proposals to:
