Message 3: 2nd World Congress of African Linguistics

Date: Tue, 21 Mar 1995 11:52:23 PST
From: "Caroline Smith" <SMITHChumnet.ucla.edu>
Subject: 2nd World Congress of African Linguistics
An announcement has recently been circulated from the University
of Leipzig concerning plans for the Second World Congress of
African Linguistics. While Leipzig would undoubtedly be a fine
place for this conference to take place and the committee which has
sent out this announcement would do an excelleant organizational
job, the announcement is premature. The Standing Committee for
World Congresses of African Linguistics has not yet decided where
the next congress will be held, and Leipzig is only one of a number
of sites being considered.

Message 4: MCAA Panel on borrowing

Subject: MCAA Panel on borrowing
 I've been asked by the conference organizers to get together a
linguistics panel for the Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs, to be held
in St. Louis on Oct. 13-15, 1995. I'm trying to organize one on linguistic
borrowing in East Asia. So far I have two strong possibilities, both on
lexical borrowing in Chinese, but there is certainly room for other topics
and other languages. If you are interested, please contact me by e-mail
with your proposal, soon (the deadline for panel proposals is April 15, I'd
like to beat that deadline.)
 In case you're not familiar with it, the MCAA is a genereal Asian
Studies conference, one of the regional affiliates of the Association for
Asian Studies. Traditionally linguistics offerings have been skimpy,
that's one of the reasons that I'm pushing this now. Since people aren't
used to seeing much linguistics at MCAA, the panels are often not extremely
well attendended, and become more like workshops (which can be productive
too), but I'm hoping we can change that this year.
