Since 2016 the Linguistic Summer School Bolivia has organized yearly linguistics courses in various locations in Bolivia, focusing on a variety of languages in this highly linguistically diverse country. The courses are taught by expert researchers working in Bolivia and elsewhere in South America, and focus on typological, functional, and formal linguistic themes.

In recognition of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages, we are pleased to announce that the Linguistic Summer School Bolivia will be hosting the 1st International Linguistics Colloquium in Bolivia. This event aims to make visible and develop linguistic research of indigenous languages of Bolivia and the Americas more broadly.

We want to invite researchers studying indigenous languages of the Americas to submit abstracts on any linguistic topic, including topics from any of the following subfields:

Phonetics - Phonology - Morphology - Morphophonology - Syntax - Semantics - Sociolinguistics
Psycholinguistics - Historical Linguistics - Verbal Art - Language Documentation
Linguistic Description - Language Revitalization - Lexicography

Talks will be 20 minutes long with 10 minutes for questions and discussion. It is preferred that talks be given in Spanish, but talks may also be given in English or Portuguese provided that slides and/or handouts have Spanish translations.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words in length (excluding linguistic examples and references), and be submitted as a PDF. The abstract PDF must be anonymous, and not include the name, email, or affiliation of the submitter. Abstracts may be sent to linguisticssummerschoolboliviagmail.com, and must be received no later than April 15, 2019. The text of the email should include the author’s name, affiliation, the title of the proposed talk, and the anticipated language of the talk (Spanish - Portuguese- English with Spanish materials).
