Founded in 1883, the Modern Language Association of America provides opportunities for its members to share their scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues and to discuss trends in the academy.

For over a hundred years, members have worked to strengthen the study and teaching of language and literature.

Call for Papers:

Deadline for submission: 15 March 2013

The General Linguistics Discussion Group of the Modern Language Association invites your paper proposal showing linguistics applied for the teaching and learning of a Middle-Eastern or Eastern Mediterranean language in North America. While this call envisions proposals involving Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Turkish, or other language or dialect from the Middle East or Western Asia, other languages or cultures are not excluded. Those submitting proposals should be members of MLA.

Submit your 250-word proposal electronically to Terrence Potter (tmp28georgetown.edu).

*This is intentionally a general call to permit proposals from different languages on a broad array of teaching/learning topics where linguistics is used. This might include: teaching/learning of literature through discourse analysis; teaching/learning of grammatical case by native speakers of English; support for the improvement of pronunciation; vocabulary learning research and tools; the incorporation of discrete elements of cultural information in the syllabus; teaching/learning translation; syllabus and curriculum development for less commonly taught languages, etc. Thank you for making our languages, cultures and hard work visible in a national forum dedicated to the teaching, learning and research in modern languages.

Thank you for sharing this call for papers with graduate students, teaching and research faculty.
