Message 3: First Call for Papers

Date: Tue, 4 May 1993 07:47 EST First Call for Papers
Subject: First Call for Papers

This year's American Association of Italian Studies held two
sessions in Linguistics for the first time. Due in part to our
appeal to *Linguist*, we drew a number of linguists who would
not have normally known about the conference.

Again next year there will be at least two sessions in
Linguistics, with the specifics to be determined by submissions.
The abstracts will be due sometime in the Fall. Next year's con-
ference will be held at the U. of Wisconsin in Madison in April.
Anyone may submit a proposal; papers MUST be presented in person,
they cannot be read by anyone else. Presenters must be members
of the AAIS, but you need not be a member to submit an abstract.
You also do not need to be an inhabitant of the "Americas" to

I therefore encourage anyone who is working in the area of Italian
(and its dialects, etc.) to consider submitting this Fall.
Questions welcome- feel free to contact me at
