The 2019 Annual Meeting of the Australian Linguistic Society: Celebrating Diversity
Location: Macquarie University, Sydney
The 50th annual conference of the Australian Linguistic Society will be hosted by Macquarie University in Sydney, from Wednesday, 11 December, 2019 to Friday 13 December, 2019. An associated half-day of preconference workshops is scheduled for Tuesday 10 December, 2019. The theme for the 50th ALS conference is Celebrating Diversity, in acknowledgement of the United Nations’ International Year of Indigenous Languages (IYIL2019). We will thus celebrate the diversity of participation in linguistics, as well as linguistic diversity itself. Human diversity, especially linguistic diversity, has been central to our evolutionary fitness and is fundamental to our continued survival on this planet. We must embrace this diversity if we are to properly understand our human faculties, nurture it and celebrate it for what it has brought us and where it will eventually take us.
We welcome a wide range of submissions across the languages of the world - Indigenous languages (from Australia and elsewhere), non-Indigenous global languages, migrant languages, sign languages, pidgins, creoles and mixed languages. As the Society hosts General Linguistics conferences, we invite submissions from all linguistic subfields, for presentations in the general sessions (20 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions), for posters, and for presentations within one of themed panels or preconference workshops listed below. Abstracts that are deemed to be outside the scope of the relevant panel or workshop will be considered for inclusion in the general sessions or poster sessions, and reviewed by the ALS program committee.
Main conference themed panels:
1. Language Variation and Change – Australia 4 (LVC-A 4). Organisers: Celeste Rodríguez Louro, Catherine Travis and James Walker.
2. Conversational narratives within small communities. Organisers: Lesley Stirling, Joe Blythe, Ilana Mushin and Rod Gardner.
3. Grammatical Relations in Australian Languages. Organisers: Thomas Ennever and Mitchell Browne.
