The NYU-CNRS Center for International Research in the Humanities and
Social Sciences invites proposals for a workshop on "Language and
Colonialism" to be held April 4 and 5, 2014 at New York University.

The relationship between language and processes of colonization and
decolonization has interested fields as diverse as anthropology,
history, sociology, linguistics, and area studies. We aim to bring
together the most vital and original contributions on the topics of
language alienations, resistances, accommodations, refusals, and
appropriations, as articulated in policies and everyday practices.
Priority will be given to proposals on the British, French, Italian,
and Dutch cases. Papers chosen for the workshop will be pre-circulated
to facilitate serious discussion, and an edited volume from the
revised papers is planned. Travel and lodging expenses will be paid
for participants.

Some possible themes:

Language and Colonial Authority
Translators as Colonial Intermediaries
Language and Racial Theories and Policies Language and/of Missionaries
and Religious Orders Language and Colonial Education Uses of the
Vernacular Language and Citizenship in the Colonial and Postcolonial
Contexts Linguistic Dimensions of Transitions to Independence
Postcolonial legacies of Colonial Language Politics and Policies

Please send an abstract (up to 250 words) and a résumé to Ruth
Ben-Ghiat <rb68 at nyu.edu> <rb68 at nyu.edu> and Alice Goheneix Polanski
<agp318 at nyu.edu> <agp318 at nyu.edu> by December 20, 2013.
