As a result of new circumstances, the Conference Committee is welcoming a second
round of proposals for what will be a very limited number of accepted papers on
historical and contemporary topics that explore the connections between
linguistic and political patriotism. Very special consideration will be given to
papers presented in French on questions relating to French Canada.

Les circonstances nous permettent maintenant d'accueillir une deuxième série de
propositions de communications sur des thèmes historiques et contemporains qui
examinent les rapports entre le patriotisme linguistique et le patriotisme
politique. Le nombre de place étant très limité, une considération particulière
sera accordée aux propositions qui porteront sur le Canada français et qui
seront présentées en français.

Date limite: le 27 mars 2009

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
