1st Call for Papers

CALL FOR PAPER 1_edited.jpg

 

Themes of the Conference

We invite abstract submissions for talks on any topics in Chinese theoretical and applied linguistics – understood broadly as covering all Sinitic languages, e.g. Mandarin, Cantonese and all regional varieties - including syntax, morphology, phonetics and phonology, semantics, language variation and sociolinguistic studies, diachronic change, language contact, typology and comparative studies, child language acquisition, second language acquisition and processing, bi/multilingualism, code-switching, and applications of theory to pedagogy.

 

Submission Requirements

Abstracts should be no more than 400 words long and should be submitted in both English and Chinese (i.e., 400 words for each language version). The best abstracts across the range of theoretical and applied areas will be selected. Talks will be running in 2 parallel sessions, as a mixture of in-person and online presentations. Each talk lasts 30 mins with 20 minutes for the presentation, and 10 minutes for questions/discussion. We will be using both Chinese and English throughout the conference. Please specify which language you would present in, should your abstract be accepted. We also intend to run informal discussion workshops after the main conference programme for those able to attend in-person.

Key Dates for the Conference

o 15th April 2022 Deadline for Call for Papers

o 1st May 2022 Notification of acceptance/rejection

o 20th-21st June 2022 Conference (8.30 am to 3:00 pm).

Following careful deliberation, we think a combined hybrid approach is best, enabling participation online from outside the UK, but also allowing other speakers and attendees to come in person to Leeds to finally enjoy some in-person networking.

 

Attendance and Student Bursaries

We aim to keep attendance fees low to encourage people to attend in person: £10 for PhD students and those without a permanent academic appointment; £30 for salaried academics. We will have some bursaries in addition up to £100 to support students without any access to conference funding to help towards accommodation cost.
