Meeting Description:

NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC (NWAV-AP)
New Ways of Analyzing Language Variation and Change: Asia-Pacific Region
February 23-26, 2011
University of Delhi, India

Keynote Speaker:
William Labov
University of Pennsylvania

Conference Coordinator: Shobha Satyanath
Department of Linguistics, University of Delhi

The annual North American meeting of New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) has a long and influential history of bringing together scholars researching language variation and change. Likewise, European conference series have provided opportunities for scholars working on this paradigm in Europe (e.g., ICLaVE). We believe that it is now time to develop a related conference series focused on the Asia-Pacific region. After all, the Asia-Pacific region includes some of the world's most sociolinguistically complex societies, many of which are being studied by local and international sociolinguists. We therefore invite you to join us in inaugurating a new regional conference, NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC (NWAV-AP), to serve as an 'Asian branch' of NWAV.

The first meeting of NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC will be held at the University of Delhi, India, February 23-26, 2011. We are happy to announce that William Labov has kindly agreed to be the keynote speaker. The research that this conference endeavors to bring together will be firmly based on empirical data with an emphasis on quantitative analysis of variation and change.

Considering the diverse opportunities and research challenges in the ever-increasing, multilingual spaces of Asia, we believe that such a forum is not only highly relevant but urgently needed. We're taking this first step in the series with the hope that others will join us in helping to make this conference a regular event at other Asian-Pacific locations in the future. We hope to see you in India for this inaugural meeting of NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC!
