Call for proposals: Digital Provocations Series, Ethics & Aesthetics of Encountering the Other (ETHER): New Frameworks for Engaging with Difference. Deadline for abstract submission: 8 January 2021.
Organizers are inviting linguists working in areas including but not restricted to: linguistic anthropology, educational linguistics, sociology, multilingualism, multimodality, communication studies, language education, intercultural communication etc. to contribute to ETHER’s Digital Provocations Series. A digital provocation is a specific data-based example of linguistic inquiry which illustrates how ETHER’s core question speaks to your own research agenda, specifically responding to the theme of Seminar 1: The Art of Seeing and Hearing the Other. There are two ways to contribute:
1) A short (7-10 minutes) pre-recorded video presentation (e.g. in Zoom / Teams or a similar digital platform with which you are familiar) focusing on a relevant aspect of your research. The presentation should be aimed at a non-specialised interdisciplinary audience of international academics as well as users of academic research.
2) An original blog entry written specifically for ETHER which introduces your research in an accessible format to the above audiences. The blog should contain relevant examples of data.
The detailed call is available here.
