Call For Papers - CFP

The Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, The CALA 2019, in Cambodia, symbolizes a significant movement forward for Linguistic Anthropology, and in problematizing current perspectives and praxis in the field of Asian Linguistic Anthropology.

The CALA seeks to respond to concerns by those within respective fields, Linguistics, Anthropology, Sociolinguistics, Sociology, Cultural studies, and of course Linguistic Anthropology These concerns include the reduced (opportunity for) focus on Asian regions and work by Asian academics, largely contributable to issues of funding and expertise. These concerns also include that academics globally seek to both work on Asian regions and with Asian regions, but impeded by the absence of appropriate networks.

The CALA 1 thus aims to begin an era within which to opportune these academics to transfer knowledge, expertise, and valuable Linguistic and Anthropological Data across the world, through the interpersonal and inter-institutional networks the CALA conferences seek to build.

To ground these efforts, the Conference, at The Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia at the centre, seeks to network a growing number of Institutions globally, to support this much needed project.

The theme for the inaugural CALA is 'Revitalization and Representation', a theme pertinent to the current state of many Asian regions and countries vis-a-vis their global analogues.

Emerging from a complex weaving for received and produced colonializations, the languages and ethnicities within Asia have experienced strong curtailment and denigration, to the point where many have reached near extinction, while others have passed the point of extinction. Here, these languages and ethnicities require urgent revitalization through an anthropological set of approaches, in collaboration with academic, and non-academic, networks globally. Revitalization can be engendered effectively through the complex channels associated with and effected through the extensive and vast work developed in Representation. Cambodia seems to be at the centre of this need for focus, with many ethnicities and their languages currently on the brink of extinction, and with several now having less than ten living speakers.

Though The Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia will host the Inaugural conference in 2019, in Siem Reap, the conference will be hosted by a different Institution globally, annually, while Paññāsāstra remains at the helm of the Conference, so to collaborate with all institutions wishing to involve themselves with and in the CALA network.

We thus welcome you to the CALA in 2019, the Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, and to the CALA network.

Presentation lengths

– Colloquia – 1.5 hours with 3-5 contributors (Part A and B is possible, thus 6-10 contributors)

Abstract Submission Guidelines

– Submission of proposals for papers, posters, and colloquia should be completed via the online submission website.

– 18-word maximum presentation title

– 400-word maximum abstract, including references

– Colloquia: Upload the abstract for the colloquium, in the submissions box. The abstract must contain both the main description of the colloquium, as well as a summarized description of each individual paper to be presented within the colloquium. This information must include the names and affiliations of each authors and presenter, and the title of each respective session/presentation, as well as any other information believed to be relevant.

– For individual papers submitted for review and acceptance into the general sessions, the first author will be the nominated ‘Corresponding Author’, but can also be a ‘Presenting author’ when completing the profile.

– Each author must also confirm their role: Presenting author, non-presenting author, chair or discussant.

Evaluation of proposals:

Proposals for individual papers, posters, and colloquia will be evaluated by the CALA Review Committee, with criteria as follows:

– Appropriateness and significance of the topic to CALA themes

– Originality/significance/impact of the research

– Clarity/coherence of research concerns, theoretical and analytical framework(s), description of research, data collection, findings/conclusions, rhetoric, and exegesis as a whole

– For colloquia, importance/significance of the overarching topic and/or framework(s) addressed, and its coherence of and with individual presentations. All abstracts for presentations within the colloquia will not be peer reviewed by the CALA review committee, but are expected to be at a standard commensurate to the parent colloquium abstract, which will be peer reviewed by the CALA review committee. Thus, the acceptance of the colloquium, and hence all presentations and discussions within that colloquium, becomes predicated on the success of the review of the main proposal for that colloquium, submitted by the main organizers of the respective colloquium.

– All abstracts for general sessions, which are selected and placed by the CALA selection committee, will be double blind reviewed.

Conditions of Submissions

– A participant may be first author/presenter in a maximum of two presentations, be it individual papers, posters, or papers within colloquia.

– All proposals must present or interpret original work otherwise yet unavailable.

– The language of the CALA is English. However, abstracts may be submitted in any language, but together with an English translation.

– Presenters can present in any language, but must prepare an English translation for the presentation.

– The CALA Committee will assign all relevant schedules to accepted individuals and groups.

– Presenters must register and pay prior to October 25, 2018, to confirm their place at the CALA 2019, and hence for their presentations to be confirmed in the program.
