Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2011

Meeting Description:

Theme: Globalization, Language Contact and Language Vitality. (Papers in
any area of linguistics are appropriate, however.)

Through this theme we encourage examination of the interplay between
new forces of globalization, new forms of language contact, and new ways
in which languages can be considered endangered. With all the nuances
and contestations over its meaning, globalization has often been seen as a
potentially fatal force, silently limiting the use of local languages both
nationally and functionally, and precipitating sociolinguistic conditions that
lead to the endangerment of less powerful languages by more powerful
ones--those whose perceived power derives from political, economic,
cultural, or other conditions. This danger acquires momentum with the
increase in both incidence and avenues of language contact resulting from
the expanding network of peoples, cultures, goods, services, and ideas
across the globe. For this conference, participants are urged to examine
whether or not, in fact, globalization is affecting the constellation of
languages in the same ways and at the same rate in different regions of the
world, how local experiences of language contact and language change
may vary from place to place, and how languages in contact may be used
side-by-side, sometimes to complement and at other times to compete with
each other within the broader context of an inter-dependent world. We
hope to forge a diverse canvas of the dynamics and counter-dynamics of
language contact, language change, language shift and maintenance,
language endangerment and language vitality, through the varied
interpretive lenses of globalization.
