44th Algonquian Conference, call for papers

The call has been posted for the 44th Algonquian Conference, which will be held at the University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center, in downtown Chicago, October 25-28, 2012.

This conference is an international meeting for researchers to present papers on Algonquian peoples. Fields of interest include anthropology, archaeology, art, education, ethnography, ethnobotany, folklore, geography, history, language education, linguistics, literature, music, native studies, political science, psychology, religion and sociology.

We invite proposals in English, French, or any Algonquian language for papers in all areas of Algonquian research. Graduate students are encouraged to apply. Presentations will be 20 minutes long followed by a 10-minute question period. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words in length, excluding title and references.

The deadline for abstract submission is September 1st. Details for how to submit are here. Please note that this is not a linguistics-specific conference. We could, for example, think about putting together a collaborative CAN-8 related abstract. Something to keep in mind this summer!

  1. Oooh, that sounds very interesting! As may have been evident from all my recent posts, I’m a huge fan of conferences. Maybe if I figure out how to make the stuff about indefinites and preverbs that I’ve been working on relevant to the classroom over the summer then I could do a presentation about how that process worked.

    Chicago is also much easier to get to than Oklahoma, in fact, my connection this time was through Chicago.
