It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep. The University of Cape Town and my new colleagues welcomed my efforts to establish the Centre for African Language Diversity-- CALDi as well as The African Language Archive-- TALA and I was recently appointed the Mellon Research Chair: African Language Diversity this initiative. The main aim of CALDi is to train young African scholars in descriptive linguistics and open up space for research into African languages at UCT with the hopes of countering the dominance of African linguistics outside the continent.

Call for papers for ESP Across Cultures
Proposals for papers would be most welcome for volume 12 (2015) of ESP Across Cultures (http://www.unifg.it/ricerca/attivita-di-ricerca-di-ateneo/esp-across-cultures).
The deadline for submitting an abstract of 250-300 words is 31 May 2014, with delivery of the completed paper by 30 November 2014.
Abstracts, papers and enquiries regarding the volume should be sent by e-mail to the editor Christopher Williams: email@example.com
In February 2014 Italy's National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research (ANVUR) awarded ESP Across Cultures with a CLASS A rating, the highest ranking available.
As from volume 11 (2014), due out later this year, ESP Across Cultures will be freely accessible online and there will no longer be a paper copy. Free accessibility of the journal online will considerably enhance its visibility and impact factor.
Since there will be no charge for online access, the costs of running the journal will be borne by the contributors themselves. Contributors will be asked to pay a small fee for their contribution to be published only if it is deemed worthy of publication by the referees following the double-blind reviewing process.
Payment will range between a minimum of 210 euros and a maximum of 300 euros, on the basis of the GDP ranking of the country of affiliation according to the Global Finance website (http://www.gfmag.com/tools/global-database/economic-data/11934-richest-poorest-countries.html#axzz2I9z7Qhwt) as follows: Country ranking 1st to 50th: 300 euros Country ranking 51st to 100th: 270 euros Country ranking 101st to 150th: 240 euros Country ranking from 151st onwards: 210 euros.
In the case of a paper written by two or more contributors coming from different affiliations, only the ranking of the country with the lower GDP will be taken into consideration. Payment is to be made per contribution irrespective of the number of contributors. In other words, a single-authored contribution and a co-authored contribution have the same cost. Naturally, no charge will be made for any contribution that is not considered worthy of publication.
