Proposals for papers in any area of linguistics will be considered.

your abstract place the paper title, and at the end of the abstract (or on a
separate page) repeat the title along with your name, affiliation, and mailing

CALL FOR PAPERS

AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS
March 25-28, 1995
Long Beach California

"LITERACY AND BILINGUALISM IN DEAF EDUCATION
ORGANIZERS: CLAIRE RAMSEY AND CAROL PADDEN, UC/SAN DIEGO

We invite abstracts for individual papers that report recent research or
research-in-progress on literacy and bilingualism among deaf students.

The focus of the colloquium will be relations between ASL and print media
in English, Spanish or another spoken language. We are interested in studies
of literacy learning and use of print among signing Deaf people of any age
(children, adolescents, adults), in a range of settings, from institutions of
formal schooling to informal, non-school settings. Abstracts should describe
the research and findings (preliminary findings for work in progress),
including the theoretical framework and the methodology.

Papers in this colloquium will be data-based reports of research. We are not
soliciting position papers about bilingual issues in deaf education.

WHAT TO SEND

1. Three copies of a typed double-spaced abstract (maximum 250 words). In
the upper left-hand corner of the first copy, place the submitter's name,
address, phone (V and TDD) number, fax number, e-mail address and
institutional affiliation.

We will conduct a blind review of abstracts, so please do not put any
identification on the second and third copies.

2. A 50-word typed single-spaced summary, headed by the title of the paper
and the name and affiliation of each presenter.

Please keep the title of your paper to a maximum of 10 words. Please be
certain that your 50-word summary reflects what you wish to appear in the
conference program. The summaries of papers to be presented in the
colloquium will be printed exactly as submitted.

3. An information sheet, with the following information:

Name of presenter(s). If there is more than one, designate which will be the
contact person for conference-related correspondence.
