Call for Papers:

This year's theme is 'Reversing the Fall of Babel: Fragmented Unities'. The myth of the Tower of Babel reminds us of a time in which a common language peacefully united humanity. However, a desire to surpass human limitations brought about divine wrath leading to the destruction of the tower. Chaos, discord and confusion emerged from the rupture of humanity into disparate nations each with its own unique language. This myth has been perpetuated throughout history, from the projects of imperial and colonial expansion and their epic encounters with the Other, to the modern conception of the nation founded on unity, which ironically, continues to emphasize that nations are fundamentally fragmented.

Linguistics papers could be related (but not limited) to:
