Meeting Description:

With the marking of 100 years as a state of the Union, the state of Arizona has had a distinct immigration, cultural, and linguistic experience as part of the United States. Recently, Arizona's relationship to the issue of immigration has been characterized by a unilateral approach that has separated it from other states and generated backlash, imitation, and discussion on local, national and international levels.

The passage of the immigration bill SB1070 ensured that Arizona's position on this issue will come into conflict with Federal immigration policies for years to come. Discussing possible compromises, preparing future policies, and bridging the immigration experience in Arizona is therefore of crucial importance. The Ambivium Institute is proud to organize a symposium on the centennial anniversary of Arizona's statehood that integrates policy and academic perspectives on new approaches to border issues and cultural experiences.

A thematic panel will focus on language and education as issues of particular relevance to the immigration debate.

Keynote Speakers:

Juan Osuna, Chairman of Immigration Board of Reviews Department of Justice (Invited)
The White House, Office of Immigration (Invited)

Call for Papers:

Submissions in all areas of applied linguistics, education, language attitudes, language policy, and bilingualism are invited.

A paper proposal of no more 250 words should be sent to AZsymposiumambivium.org with full name, title, and institutional affiliation. The conference registration fee of $65.00 will cover breakfast and lunch during the one-day event. Student registration will be $25.00 with valid undergraduate identification. Entrance for high school and middle school students is free with written and signed parental authorization to attend.

Proposal deadline: February 1, 2012
Notification: February 12, 2012

Note: The Symposium is being organized to celebrate the diversity of the state of Arizona. All views are therefore educational in nature, and all perspectives are welcomed to allow a balanced environment for discussion.
