International Conference on Minority Languages (ICML XVII)

Call for Papers
Leeuwarden, The Netherlands, 22 - 25 May 2019

The Mercator Research Centre of The Netherlands, will host the 17th International Conference on Minority Languages (ICML XVII) under the title of Minority Languages in a Globalised Society, to take place in Leeuwarden (Ljouwert), the capital of Frisia, from 22 to 25 May 2019.

Globalization has affected our world in countless ways. For example, it changed (and is still changing) how people do business and communicate with each other, and it impacts education and language learning. This is also the case for minority or minoritized languages. But while the world is increasingly globalizing, minority languages may face severe challenges to survive or withhold their position within a dynamic society. ICML XVII will address the challenges and opportunities of smaller languages such as minority languages in a globalised society. It aims to bring together scholars and students across the multidisciplinary field of minority languages. The organisers welcome proposals focussing on minority languages and digital technologies, language use in social media, new speakers, migration, methodologies in minority language research, language policies and revitalization, education and language learning, language documentation and archiving. Proposals regarding original, previously unpublished research on minority languages are invited in three formats: colloquia, individual papers and posters. Proposals should relate to one (or more) of the conference themes listed above.

Abstracts for papers and posters should be submitted at bit.do/abstract-2 by 1 October 2018.

The 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS), the most inclusive international gathering in the field of Asian Studies, will be held in Leiden, the Netherlands, from 16 to 19 July 2019. ICAS attracts participants from over 60 countries to engage in global dialogues on Asia that transcend boundaries between academic disciplines and geographic areas. ICAS 11 will be organized by Leiden University, the International Institute for Asian Studies and GIS Asie (French Academic Network on Asian Studies). The special focus of ICAS 11 is Asia and Europe. Asia in Europe, but proposals for ICAS 11 may involve topics from all Asian Studies disciplines in the broadest possible sense, such as Eurasia, Citizen Participation, Heritage and Identity, Connectivity, New Pedagogies, Social Capital, etc.

Events will include: panels and roundtable discussions, keynote speeches, craft exhibitions, a film and documentary festival and the second Asian Studies Book Fair. With all these activities ICAS is contributing to the decentering of Asian Studies by including more 'Asian voices' while successfully convening a global space in which Asia scholars and social and cultural actors from the whole world can directly interact. ICAS 11 will offer a multitude of networking opportunities, possibilities to share research and to meet with publishers. Limited financial support is available for selected PhD students, early career scholars and registered members of GIS Asie.
