As the 9th Annual Martin Luther King Day Linguistics Symposium, the Department of Linguistics of The Ohio State University is pleased to announce a conference on ‘Ecology AND Language’, where the emphasis on the conjunction of the two notions is intentional. The symposium will explore various types of mutual enrichment between the study of language and the study of ecology, understood in its broadest sense as referring to interactions between organisms, including language-using humans, and their environment as it is shaped by social, political, and natural factors.
There will be invited presentations by Lenore Grenoble of the University of Chicago, on ecology of language use and language endangerment in the circumpolar regions, and by Salikoko Mufwene of the University of Chicago, on an ecological approach to language development and change. In addition, there will be a presentation by John Wenzel, of the Center for Biodiversity and Ecosystems of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, on biological and linguistic ‘extinction science’, a panel featuring Amanda Miller, Jane Mitsch, and Deborah Morton (all of The Ohio State University) on the ecology of literacy in Africa, and talks on several ecologically inspired linguistics projects under way at The Ohio State University involving researchers in the Department of Linguistics, the Department of Greek and Latin, and the School of Environment and Natural Resources.
Call for Papers:
There is room on the program for more papers, so we invite submission of abstracts for presentations of 20 minutes (with 10 additional minutes for questions and discussion) on any topic relating to the symposium theme investigating the intersection of ecology and language.
Please send one-page 500-word (maximum) abstracts (with references and key data placed on a second page if needed) abstracts electronically as a pdf file to:
The deadline for receipt of your abstract is Monday, November 28, 2011. Please include your name, affiliation, and contact information along with the abstract. We will send notifications about acceptances by December 5.
