Message 2: Local Language in Local Chinese Culture

Date: Thu, 15 May 1997 08:48:03 -0700 (PDT)
From: David Prager Branner <charmiiu.washington.edu>
Subject: Local Language in Local Chinese Culture

Abstracts are being accepted for a panel to be submitted to the Association
for Asian Studies, on "Local Language in Local Chinese Culture" to be held
at the AAS annual meeting in Wash. DC, 26-29 March, 1998. 

Preference will be given to papers presenting concrete descriptive material
from specific parts of China, but without sacrificing accessibility to a
non-specialist audience. The goal of this panel is to investigate the
regional texture and colloquial color of the weave that makes up that broad
fabric called the Chinese language.

All presentations must be given in English, and conform to the usual AAS
specifications. Please send abstracts of not more than 250 words to

 David Prager Branner or Richard VanNess Simmons
