Message 2: Call: Panel on Classification and Comparison

Date: Sun, 06 Aug 1995 09:59:23 Call: Panel on Classification and Comparison
From: David Prager Branner <charmiiu.washington.edu>
Subject: Call: Panel on Classification and Comparison

 Panel on Chinese Dialect Comparison and Classification
 at the 206th Annual Meeting of the American Oriental Society
 MARCH 1996 IN PHILADELPHIA

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS (August, 1995)

 There will be a panel on Chinese Dialect Comparison and
Classification at the next Annual Meeting of the American Oriental Society
(AOS), in Philadelphia, March, 1996. The panel organizers welcome

 1. papers that rigorously address issues of Chinese dialect
 classification--as criteria, methodology, proposed groupings,
 etc., or
 2. studies that seek to further knowledge of the nature and
 relationships of Chinese dialects through detailed comparison--as
 comparison of phonology, lexicon, grammar, etc.

 The dialects discussed may be living or historical. We will give
preference to presentations that are data-heavy over papers that focus on
analysis with very little supporting data.

 Proposals are now being accepted for review and should be in the
form of a one-page typed abstract that details the issues addressed,
outlines the central conclusions, and characterizes the supporting data to
be included.

 This panel is separate from the other Yuen Ren Society conference
on Fresh Chinese Dialect Fieldwork that is being held at the same meeting.
It is permissible for one person to deliver papers at both events.

 As the AOS deadline for panel proposals is in mid-October, the
final deadline for us to receive your proposal/abstract is 24 September
1995. (Please send it sooner if at all possible.) Your proposal will be
anonymously submitted to our review panel, and you will be notified of a
decision once the panel proposal is finalized.

 For questions and further details, you may write to the panel
organizer, R. VanNess Simmons, after 1 September by email at
rsimmongandalf.rutgers.edu or regular mail at:

 East Asian Languages
 Scott Hall, Room 330
 Rutgers University
