E-mail this message to a friend
This year we will be conducting the SLA graduate student paper prize
competition a little differently than in the past (note, the undergraduate
student paper prize competition is not affected by this and will be
announced as usual). The SLA is calling for graduate students to submit
papers to the section by March 15th; the winner and finalists will then be
invited to participate in an SLA-sponsored workshop at the 2011 AAA
meetings in Montreal, along with two senior linguistic anthropologists (to
be announced), to conduct a discussion based on the papers’ research
results. In order to be eligible for the award, the applicant must have
been either a graduate or undergraduate student in a degree-granting
program when the paper was written; must be the sole author of the paper;
and must submit the paper no more than two years after it was written. The
paper must be an original work based on original research conducted by the
author. It will be evaluated on the basis of clarify, significance to the
field, and substantive contribution. The paper should be suitable for
submission to the Journal of Linguistic Anthropology and must not exceed 25
double-spaced pages, not including bibliography. At the time of submission
for this competition, the paper must not have been published or submitted
The paper must be submitted electronically in either .pdf or .doc format by
the March 15 deadline. It should be sent to Jillian Cavanaugh, SLA Member
at Large (at jcavanaughbrooklyn.cuny.edu). The cover sheet should include
the title of the paper; the author’s name; the author’s email address; the
author’s college or university affiliation; and the name of the faculty
member who served as the student’s advisor with respect to the writing of
the paper. Please contact Jillian Cavanaugh with any questions.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your

EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
