The Workshop on Immigrant Languages in the Americas is an annual conference focused on heritage language research. WILA began in 2010 as a conference on ''Investigating Immigrant Languages in America'' at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Since then, its host university has alternated between the United States and abroad.
Research on migrant and heritage languages has often incorporated different approaches to linguistics, including formalist, functionalist, experimental and social factors driving language loss and language transmission. A relatively underexplored topic relating to heritage languages is that of ideology, although ideology clearly plays a major role in heritage languages at every level. The theme of WILA12 is ideology, and while submissions dealing with this broad theme are welcome, submissions having to do with heritage languages from other perspectives are likewise welcome.
Call for Papers:
We invite abstracts for 30-minute presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions) and posters on any aspect of the linguistics of heritage languages in the Americas (e.g., structural, historical, sociolinguistic, or experimental). Abstracts should be no more than 400 words, but may include additional information such as diagrams, charts, and references. Abstracts should be submitted to http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/WILA12
Selected papers from the conference will be published. There will be a separate call for papers for the publication.
