Call for Papers

25-27 September, 2007
The University of Adelaide

You are invited to join in an Indigenous Languages Conference, to be held at the University of Adelaide in September 2007. The Conference will run as part of LINGAD2007, which combines the Indigenous Languages Conference, the Australian Linguistics Society conference, and AUSTRALEX (concerned with making dictionaries), during the same period. This will allow various people involved in Language work to meet and discuss issues that involve all of us.

Call for Papers / Workshops / Panels

We are now asking for people who would like to present on any topic related to the use and strengthening of Australia’s Indigenous languages, run a workshop or panel, or be part of a panel. Indigenous Language workers and Indigenous teachers of Australian Languages are particularly encouraged to participate.

Some ideas for topics might include:

  • Dictionary Projects
  • Interpreting and Translation
  • Language Maintenance
  • Language Renewal/Reclamation
  • Language and the Law
  • Language and Health
  • Cultural and Linguistic Survival
  • Language and Native Title
  • Language Politics
  • Indigenous Languages Education
  • Developing Resource Materials
  • Language Resources and How to Access Them
  • Language Planning

Different kinds of presentations are welcome.

If you have an idea for a presentation/paper but are a bit unsure and want to talk about it first, why not email us or give us a call! We will be happy to discuss your idea with you, and help you develop it into a great presentation/paper.
