Meeting Description:

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Literatures and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies at the Ohio State University are pleased to announce the 9th Graduate Colloquium on Slavic Linguistics. The colloquium, hosted by the Slavic Linguistics Forum, will take place on October 22, 2011, at the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, OH. In the past this event has featured panels on many topics, including morphology, syntax, language acquisition, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, phonology, phonetics, semantics, language contact, dialectology and psycholinguistics. We anticipate a wide range of topics covering a wide range of Slavic languages.

We are also very happy to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Mark Lauersdorf from the University of Kentucky. Dr. Lauersdorf’s research areas include the historical sociolinguistics of Slovak and German, the creation and use of corpora, and many areas involving the West Slavic languages, including dialectology, language planning and indigenous minority languages.

Call for Papers:

The deadline for submissions to our Colloquium has been extended to August 25, 2011.

We invite students and recent graduates working in all areas of Slavic, Balkan, and East-European linguistics to submit abstracts. These areas include but are not restricted to: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and dialectology.

We encourage students working in both formal and functional frameworks to participate in this event. Interdisciplinary projects from the students in related fields such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, and comparative studies are welcome, as far as they are related to Slavic and East-European languages.

Each presentation will be allowed 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Please send abstracts (maximum 500 words) to Kate White (white.1648osu.edu).

The abstracts should be anonymous. Please include your name, affiliation, mailing address, and email address in the body of the email.

Accommodation with local graduate students will be available.

If you have any questions, please contact the organizers.
