38th Annual Convention


NOVEMBER 7-9, 1996

Minneapolis Marriott City Center
Minneapolis, Minnesota

The 1996 Applied Linguistics Section of M/MLA invites papers that
explore the ways in which computers are affecting language practices
and the politics of literacy. Popular writers and literary scholars
often discuss the dramatic ways computers are affecting reading and
writing in the late twentieth century. What do applied linguists say?
What does linguistic analysis tell us about the ways computers are
transforming our language practices?

Possible presentation topics include:

changes in language theories
due to electronic literacy

methodologies useful for
researching the impact of computers on language

ethnolinguistic studies of computers
in schools and workplaces

empirical studies of new genres
or other language formations

the possibilities, features, and problems
of hypertext as a new genre

the significance of race, class, and gender
variables on electronic literacy

the implications of electronic literacy
for critical or social change education

cyberspace as a new
linguistic frontier

One or two page proposals should be
received by Friday, March 29, 1996. Include the title
of your presentation and list your name,
address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
Please remember the format for M/MLA presentations:
individual presentations are limited to fifteen minutes;
final papers are limited to 8 single-spaced pages;
and papers will be made available to session participants
