Message 1: Workshop on Long Distance Reflexives at LSA Institute

Date: Sat, 05 Oct 1996 13:23:10 CDT
From: Peter Cole <pcolelocalhost.udel.edu>
Subject: Workshop on Long Distance Reflexives at LSA Institute
Workshop on Long Distance Reflexives
LSA Linguistic Institute
Cornell University
July 5-6, 1997

Organizers: Peter Cole, Gabriella Hermon and James Huang

A two-day workshop will be held on long distance reflexives
(reflexives whose antecedents appear to be non-local). Topics include
the connection between morphology and long distance reflexives
(e.g. monomorphemic versus polymorphemic forms), subject orientation,
blocking effects caused by change in person, blocking effects caused
by clause type and the role of logophoricity. Empirical studies
(presenting novel data and/or descriptions of previously undescribed
systems of long distance reflexives), papers on theoretical problems
and acquisition studies are all appropriate for presentation.

Participants will include both invited speakers and authors of papers
chosen on the basis of abstracts. We are exploring the possibility of
publishing a volume which will include selected talks given at the
workshop. Unfortunately, the workshop will not be able to provide any
funding for the travel expenses of participants.

Linguists interested in presenting their work at the workshop should
send three copies of a one-page abstract of the presentation to the
address below.

Deadline: February 15, 1997.

Asian Studies will have the theme of Interwoven Identities: Southeast

relate to the following subjects and include one or more Southeast
Asian country: (1) contemporary issues such as the environment, women,
development or democracy and their implications; (2) regionalization
of the economies of Asia (e.g. AFTA, APEC) and its consequences; (3)
historic or contemporary cultural ties such as religion, language, the
arts, or the impact of westernization.

Other panels and topics may also be proposed; however, those addressing
issues that cross traditional area studies boundaries will be given
preference.
