56th Linguistics Colloquium

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND PAPERS
56th LINGUISTICS COLLOQUIUM
November 26 to 28, 2020

International conference comprising all fields of linguistics
For the first time taking place as a free online event
Special theme: Translation, Multilinguality and Cognition
Submission of abstracts: September 30, 2020
Submission of full papers: February 28, 2021
Website (English and German)
Keynote speaker: Philipp Koehn, Johns Hopkins University, USA

Since its inception in 1966, the Linguistics Colloquium has been held annually without interruption in a total of 18 European countries. Its long term continuity is ensured by a large international committee consisting of its previous organizers. The Colloquium is devoted to research in all areas of linguistics. It is open to different theoretical approaches and aims to create friendly and inspiring conditions for the fruitful exchange of ideas and results. It is also appreciated for its welcoming atmosphere and cooperative discussion culture open to scientists of all ages and nationalities.

Traditionally, authors submit an abstract which, upon acceptance, is presented and discussed at the conference. Afterwards, a full paper has to be submitted, taking into account the outcome of the scientific discussion. As usually, also this year we plan to publish the proceedings as a hardcover book in the series “Linguistik International” of the Peter Lang publishing house.

Like many other conferences, this year, for the first time in its history, the Linguistics Colloquium will be organized as an online event. As, despite regular attendance from overseas, the Colloquium has been a mostly European event so far, we hope that colleagues from other continents will see this as an opportunity to get to know the friendly and co-operative spirit of the colloquium. To further encourage this and because an online event requires less funding, as a novelty this year we decided to completely waive registration fees.

The special theme of this year’s conference is “Translation, Multilinguality and Cognition”. But contributions from all areas of linguistics are welcome, including but not limited to:

PROCEEDINGS
As in previous years, we plan to publish post-conference proceedings as a hardcover book in the series Linguistik International of the Peter Lang publisher.

CONFERENCE LANGUAGES
Conference languages are English and German. Although the Linguistics Colloquium supports linguistic diversity, for organizational reasons we are not able to provide for more languages. To avoid problems for delegates not speaking both languages, attention will be placed on parallelizing programme sessions in such a way that, as far as possible, there is always a choice of language.CONTACTPlease send all correspondence relating to the 56th Linguistics Colloquium 2020 by e-mail to lingcoll(at)gmx.de

Indiana State University is offering a two-year, fully funded Graduate Assistantship position within the Master of Arts in TESL and Linguistics program. This position includes a tuition waiver and stipend for a graduate teaching or research assistant. We are seeking a candidate who can teach either English as a Second Language (ESL) or a beginning foreign language at the undergraduate level. For language instruction, we require advanced level proficiency in the language of instruction. In the area of foreign language instruction, we are seeking a candidate with one of the following languages: French, German, Japanese, Korean, or Spanish. Special consideration will be given to Indiana residents but applications are open to any interested student.

As a graduate student in the Master of Arts TESL and Linguistics program, you will be a full-time student earning 33 credits (taking a maximum of 9 credits per semester) over 2 years. Our TESL area focuses on the acquisition and teaching of languages, especially English as a second language. Courses include a mixture of hands-on practical teaching and theory. Course offerings in the area of linguistics include applied linguistics, language acquisition, phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, sociolinguistics, fieldwork, research methods, and various special topics courses.

Our MA program prepares students for careers in teaching and education, industry, government, and non-profit organizations, as well as continuing study at the PhD level in TESL, Linguistics, Second Language Studies, and related fields. Additionally, our department promotes experiential learning and strives to offer community engagement related to linguistics.
The smaller size of our program allows for high levels of interaction between students and faculty with many opportunities for research projects and involvement in various campus organizations. The department specializes in research related to second language acquisition (Drs. D’Amico and Sterling) and sociolingusitics and dialectology (Drs. Bakos and Jose) and has several ongoing collaborative research agendas with actively engaged students. Several of our recent graduates have presented their work at national conferences such as the American Association of Applied Linguistics and New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV). In select cases, these presentations have led to publications with faculty in academic journals.

To apply please complete the online application found at the web address for applications below.

Your application must include:
1. A resume or CV
2. A personal statement/letter of intent
3. All transcripts from your undergraduate institution(s)
4. A list of three academic references with name, job title, affiliation/school, and contact information for each reference

The graduate teaching assistantship will be guaranteed for two years, provided that the student is in good standing and making sufficient academic progress after the first academic year.
