Forwarded from the LINGUIST list, with apologies for multiple postings – this looks like a project in which it would be very nice to see Uralic languages represented, too!

> The lion’s share of the world’s living languages face a bleak future. A
> growing consensus of linguists predicts that by the close of the 21st century
> 50-90% will disappear. Efforts to reverse this trend are underway worldwide.
> The purpose of this edited volume is to provide case studies of revitalization
> efforts at schooling early writing among children between approx. 3 and 12
> years in lesser-known languages worldwide (e.g., from Africa, Asia, Australia,
> Europe, the Americas, and the Pacific). 
> 
> Prospective authors are invited to submit a 500 word abstract and a short list
> of resources about the selected language and culture in APA style as well as
> the following information: Your full name in the order you might wish it to
> appear in a publication, the name of your institution or tribal affiliation,
> your full office or home address, your email, and your mobile phone number
> (with country code). Please include all of the requested information in one
> doc or docx. Email Abstract to: Arieh.Sherris at gmail.com with the following in
> the subject line: EARLY WRITING IN INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES ABSTRACT. Abstracts
> are due by March 15, 2016, but a call will remain open until 12-15 excellent
> abstracts are received. 
> First drafts of future papers (7000-9000 words, not including bibliography)
> from selected abstracts would be require within approx. 5-months of
> notification that your abstract has been accepted. Papers will go through
> double blind review. 
> 
> In the interest of clarity and possible future comparative study, your
> chapter, if asked to write one, will require the following structure:
> 
> 1. Brief introduction/rationale for paper
> 2. Brief history of indigenous culture & people
> 3. Brief description of the structure of the language
> 4. Description of revitalization efforts
> 5. Description of school context
> 6. Description of instructional writing practices
> 7. Description & discussion of early writing exploring writing development
> with writing samples from children; samples could be drawn from a subset of
> ages anywhere between 3 and 12 years of age
> 8. Promising exploratory directions for future revitalization efforts with
> respect to writing your language
> 9. Resources (APA style)
