Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The Ohio State University Conference on Linguistic Pedagogy
January 15-16, 2009
Keynote Speaker: Kirk Hazen, West Virginia University
Organized by Hope C. Dawson & Brian D. Joseph, OSU

Linguistics is a still relatively “new” discipline as far as the academy is concerned, and has not yet progressed to the stage at which it has its own allied field of “Linguistics Education”; in that sense. Linguistics is unlike older, more established fields such as mathematics or art (for which there are allied programs in Math Education or Art Education at many universities). Still, there is research in the area of linguistics education, and one can find articles in leading journals on the topic (e.g. review articles in Language such as Ladd 1982 (vol. 58, 890-6) or Nevis & Stonham 1999 (vol. 75, 801-9), and the “Teaching American Speech” pedagogy section of American Speech (vol. 84.2 (2009)). To promote awareness of linguistics pedagogy, the Department of Linguistics at The Ohio State University has for the past 8 years held an annual lecture on this subject, inviting a leading figure in our field known for teaching excellence and innovation. In connection with the 2010 Pedagogy Lecture, to be given by Dr. Kirk Hazen, and to give further prominence to our belief in the importance of paying attention to educational practices in linguistics, we are convening a conference on linguistics pedagogy, to be held on January 15-16, 2010. Papers for the conference focus on innovative techniques for teaching various subjects, innovative course design, incorporating technology into linguistics classes, spreading the word about linguistics to generalist audiences, and related topics.
