The deadline for the submission of papers to the Athabascan/Dene Languages
Conference (ALC) to be held June 25-27 2010 in Eugene, Oregon is approaching.
The Athabascan/Dene Languages Conference brings together linguists, speakers,
educators and policy makers from across the Athabascan 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.
Call for Papers
Abstracts have to be submitted by April, 1 2010.
Abstracts are invited for 30-minute presentations in all areas of
Athabascan/Dene linguistics, language documentation, language teaching, language
policy, and language revitalization. Presentations addressing the themes/special
sessions of the conference are particularly welcome
Special Session 1 "What stories and conversations can teach us"
The collection of narratives has always been an integral part of both linguistic
and anthropological work, and it is one of the important issues worked on by
many communities. The first special session has the goal of investigating
narrative data from all perspectives in order to stimulate new research and
The genre of conversation on the other hand has long been neglected, partially
because of the difficulties associated with recording 'natural' conversation.
However, the study of this linguistically rich genre will not only benefit
linguistic inquiry, but is also highly relevant for language revitalization
efforts, since language learners need to be able to listen to natural
conversation in addition to other forms of language teaching.
We thus invite all presentations on linguistic, anthropological, or pedagogical
research related to narratives and conversation.
Special Session 2 "Language Technology in Revitalization"
For the second special session, we invite presentations of media used in
community efforts in language revitalization, such as e.g. websites, books,
DVD's or larger projects. The presentations can be full-length talks, but we
also strongly encourage poster-style presentations, laptop-demonstrations,
tutorials for technical workflows or simply bringing along books, posters and
other materials to be displayed during a poster-style session.
Deadline: April, 1 2010
Submission guidelines: For oral presentations, please email your anonymous
abstracts as .doc or .pdf to olgalithophile.com AND gabrielemuellergmail.com.
