(R)Evolution in Romance Languages and Literatures
October 1st and 2nd 2010

Call for Papers

Since the collapse of the Roman Empire, the languages of the former have
evolved, transformed, and spread across the globe. The Romance languages and
literatures diverged and reencountered each other, provoking cultural,
linguistic, and literary changes and exchanges. These (r)evolutions continue
into the present era and enrich our understanding of a shared past, present,
and future. In order to enrich the academic conversation and establish
connections, the objectives of this conference are:

- To foster dialogues and interdisciplinary approaches to Romance languages and

- To showcase future scholars and create a forum for young scholars to converse
across disciplines about trends in research and pedagogy

- To encourage the discussion of connections between Romance literatures and
languages and between literary studies and linguistics

- To connect literary and linguistic research with other fields such as history,
anthropology, philosophy, sociology, education, psychology, media studies, and
the arts

Potential topics include:

Language policy and planning
Social linguistics
Literary pragmatics
Language contact
Second language acquisition
Teaching methodology
Language evolution
Local cultures

Deadline for abstracts is extended to August 1st. Papers will be accepted in
Romance languages and English. The RLL GSA aims to publish the proceedings of
the conference. Abstracts should be 250 words. Send abstract with proposed title
as an attachment in Microsoft Word or PDF to UBRomancegmail.com.

Student Association.
