CFP CALA 2019 Revitalization & Representation (Cambodia)

ConferencesInaugural Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, The Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia, Siem Reap, Cambodia, January 23-26, 2019. Deadline: June 15, 2018.

The theme for the inaugural CALA is Revitalization and Representation, a theme pertinent to the current state of many Asian regions and countries vis-a-vis their global analogues.

Emerging from a complex weaving for received and produced colonializations, the languages and ethnicities within Asia have experienced strong curtailment and denigration, to the point where many have reached near extinction, while others have passed the point of extinction. Here, these languages and ethnicities require urgent revitalization through an anthropological set of approaches, in collaboration with academic, and non-academic, networks globally. Revitalization can be engendered effectively through the complex channels associated with and effected through the extensive and vast work developed in Representation. Cambodia seems to be at the centre of this need for focus, with many ethnicity and their languages currently on the brink of extinction, and with several now having less than ten living speakers.

We now live in an environment where many of our dialogues and interactions are facilitated, actualized, virtualized, augmented, or completed by and through communication technologies and online platforms. Humans go online not only to interact with other human beings, but also to interact with information and data. In many contexts, we now achieve dialogical communication by integrating technologies and information, using or creatively appropriating various platforms (e.g. Castells, 2007; Dahlberg, 2007; Fuchs & Obrist, 2010, Papacharissi, 2015).

CFP Oxford Migration Conference (UK)

ConferencesCall for Papers | Oxford Migration Conference: Crossing borders / Crossing disciplines: Rethinking Inclusion, Exclusion, and Human Mobility. 17–18 May 2018, Worcester College, Oxford University, UK. Deadline: 20 April 2018.

Human mobility is accompanied by processes of inclusion and exclusion. Whether in large-scale economic processes or face-to-face encounters, navigating ethnic, cultural, religious, economic, or linguistic differences resulting from migration and mobility can be challenging for states, societies, and individuals alike.

What are the various scales and moments at which processes of inclusion and exclusion come to the fore? Who includes and who excludes? Where do processes of inclusion and exclusion take place? What effects do they have at the individual, regional, national or international levels?

This conference aims to generate new inter- and multi-disciplinary insights and ideas on the theme of inclusion/exclusion. We invite abstracts from researchers at all academic levels addressing processes of inclusion/exclusion in relation to human migration and mobility from all disciplinary perspectives.

Practitioners and policy-makers are welcome to submit their ideas, and contributions that feature applied or practical collaboration with groups or individuals outside of universities are particularly invited.
