Heritage Language Conference at UCLA: CALL FOR PAPERS

NHLRC will be hosting our second international conference on heritage/community languages March 7 & 8, 2014 at UCLA. We hope to have a great turn out again in 2014. Please help us by sending out this call for papers. As you can see, we are seeking papers from various disciplines.

Second International Conference on Heritage/Community Languages

March 7-8, 2014
Covel Commons @ UCLA

Call for Proposals (Submission Deadline: August 31, 2013)

Our conference will focus on heritage/community language studies as a multidisciplinary field. We seek submissions from disciplines including but not limited to anthropology, demographics, linguistics, sociology, applied linguistics, policy, psychology, bilingualism, education, and assessment.

You are invited to submit a proposal for a poster, a paper, or a panel. (A panel submission can accommodate up to four individual papers under a common theme.)

Proposal submission is a 2-step process:

1) Please file your proposal for a poster, a paper, or a panel, here. Before submitting, you will be required to register and create a password, and then can log in to the system to submit your proposal.

2) In addition, to facilitate review and program organization, please complete an information form here.

(Please make sure to complete both these steps. Proposals will go out for external review, and our database capacity does not allow us to have a single submission site that can simultaneously process submissions, reviews, and program organization.)
