Meeting Description:

The Center for Tribal Studies at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK, announces its 4th annual Oklahoma Workshop on Native American Languages. OWNAL focuses on descriptive studies of indigenous languages of the Americas. This weekend workshop takes place at the end of the 39th Annual Symposium on the American Indian (April 11-16, 2011). Our keynote speaker is Dr. Mary Linn, curator of the Native American Languages archive at the University of Oklahoma's Sam Noble Museum of Natural History. After the Saturday workshop, participants may attend the Saturday Powwow that brings together well-known dancers and local Oklahoma tribes.

Call for Papers:

OWNAL: Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17, 2011, Northeastern State University,
Tahlequah, Oklahoma

The deadline for abstracts is February 25. Talks are 20 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes for questions. Abstracts should be between 300-500 words and may be submitted by email. Contact details, institutional affiliation, and title (professor, student, or independent scholar) must be included. We also welcome poster presentations dealing with any topic relating to the languages/language families of the Americas. Poster presentations are especially encouraged from students and researchers early in their careers who want to present work-in-progress or receive more individual feedback than allowed for by the 10-minute discussion in the paper presentations. Please submit a [250] word abstract following the guidelines for paper presentations. State 'poster presentation' under the title. Poster presentations should follow the LSA poster presentation guidelines at http://www.lsadc.org/info/meet-poster.cfm.

The program committee will announce the presentation schedule no later than March 10. Abstracts and questions may be submitted to Brad Montgomery-Anderson (montgombnsuok.edu). Registration: $40, $20 for students. (This fee is primarily a fundraiser for the symposium; it also pays for refreshments and a catered lunch.) Make checks payable to NSU with 'Center for Tribal Studies-OWNAL' in the memo.
