[ Call for Papers-Call for Applications ]

An interesting call for papers from the JOE-List:

The Departments of Slavic Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the Universität Regensburg are pleased to announce the Second International Perspectives on Slavistics Conference. The conference will take place in Regensburg, Germany, September 21-24, 2006.

The goals of the conference are to encourage
the study of Slavic languages and literatures and to establish
connections among scholars working in these areas. There will be
three parallel sections, two focusing on literature and cultural
studies, the third one reserved for linguistics. The linguistics
section will have the honour to host the 6th Annual Conference of the
Slavic Cognitive Linguistics Association. The following keynote
lectures will be presented:

  • Language Mixing and Language Separation in Bilingual Russian-German
    Children (Tanja Anstatt)
  • Features: Slavonic and Typological
    Perspectives (Greville Corbett)
  • Speaking from the Inside: Stories of
    Everyday Life in Russia (Catriona Kelly)
  • On the Discourse of National
    Identity in Russian Culture (Renata von Maydell)
  • Fundamentals of Ego-
    Linguistics. Self-reference, Self-centred Speech Acts, and Related
    Phenomena in Contemporary Russian (Daniel Weiss)
  • Fiction and
    Individuality (Georg Witte)
  • Submissions from any scholar working on Slavic languages or
    literatures are welcomed, including those in Slavic departments, as
    well as in specialized linguistics or literature departments. We
    particularly want to encourage young scholars to participate in this
    conference. Papers will be considered on topics relating to the
    diachronic or synchronic study of Slavic languages and literatures
    from any theoretical perspective. Each paper will be allowed thirty
    minutes (including 10 minutes for discussion). The deadline for
    submissions is April 15th 2006 (abstract specifications see below).
    Presentations should be in English in order to open the conference up
    to researchers working on non-Slavic languages and literatures.

    participation fee will be 50 euros (25 for graduate students and
    passive participants), to be paid in advance. Detailed information on
    payment options & deadlines and hotel accommodation will be provided
    by May 2006. The participation fee covers the abstract booklet, other
    conference materials, refreshments and snacks. A limited number of
    participants from economically disadvantaged countries may be allowed
    free participation upon application. Please include a motivated
    application for free participation when sending in your abstract. In
    assigning waivers priority will be given to graduate students and non-
    tenured scholars. Please, do not hesitate to contact us for further
