Featured Panel:

The panel will discuss issues involved in using English in an international organization 

The theme of the conference is English--Global and Local. Over the past half century, English has become ever more widely spoken across the globe, and at the same time multiple and increasingly distinctive varieties have emerged. Both phenomena have given rise to questions and controversy. What accounts for the spread of English? Is it to be considered entirely or mainly a product of political, economic, or cultural imperialism? Or is it better explained as a result of social and economic change at the local level? How do we account for the development of local varieties? How should those varieties be handled in formal education and in literature? What is the significance of English and the diverse English languages for the political and social identities of people in different parts of the world? What are the consequences of the dominance of English for the use of other languages?

Final Call for Papers:

Proposals on these and related questions are particularly invited. We also welcome proposals in other areas of linguistics and on other languages.

Submission deadline is January 14, 2013. Time allotted for presentations will be 20 minutes for delivery of the paper plus 5 minutes for discussion. Proposals may be made for paper presentations, panel presentations, or poster presentations.
