Annual Conference of the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies 2011
Call for papers in Languages and Linguistics
The annual conference of the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) will take place at Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge (UK), from 2 to 4 April 2011 (http://www.basees.org.uk/conference.shtml).
Abstracts are invited for individual 20-minute papers or for entire panels (2-3 papers) in any area of Slavonic philology, linguistics, language teaching, and translation studies.
The working languages of the conference are English and Russian. Proposals for complete themed panels are particularly welcome.
At this year’s conference we had around thirty papers in contemporary linguistics, historical linguistics, applied linguistics, semiotics, language teaching, and translation studies presented by academics and graduate students from institutions in a wide range of countries.
The annual convention as a whole brings together scholars from a wide range of disciplines including literary studies, linguistics, cultural studies, history, economics, politics, sociology, film and media studies as they pertain to Central and Eastern Europe and to the former Soviet Union.
To submit a paper abstract or a panel proposal, you need to download the proposal form from the BASEES website at http://www.basees.org.uk/conference.shtml, and email it to the linguistics stream organizer, Dagmar Divjak at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 September 2010. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by the end of October 2010.
