ConCALL Conference, Bloomington, IN, April 17-19, 2020
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) will be hosting the 4th Conference of Central Asian Language and Linguistics (ConCALL-4) at Indiana University from April 17-19, 2020.
We are currently accepting submissions for 20-minute paper presentations (with 10 minute post-presentation questions and discussion) on topics related to Central Asian languages and linguistics, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region (among others), a diverse range of languages such as Azerbaijani, Dari, Kazakh, Kurdish, Kyrgyz, Mongolian, Pashto, Persian, Tajiki, Tibetan, Turkish, Turkmen, Tuvan, Uyghur, Uzbek, and more. Submissions on endangered Central Asian languages (e.g. Buryat and Kalmyk (Mongolic), Shugni (Iranian), Selkup (Uralic), and Chuvash, Baskirt and Yakut (Turkic), among others, are especially welcome.
The main goal of ConCALL is to bring together experts across the fields to focus on research into how these specific languages are represented formally, as well as acquired by second/foreign language learners and also to present research driven teaching methods.
ConCALL-4 is accepting submissions on phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language acquisition (L1 and L2), as well as language pedagogy as concerns a Central Asian language.
