Call for papers
Siberian life: language and culture in the great North
In recent decades a number of interrelated subdisciplines of linguistics such as anthropological linguistics, ethnosyntax, or cultural linguistics have arisen which are still in the stage of defining themselves. The aim of the workshop is to bring together scholars to explore the potential of these young disciplines.
The Institute for Finno-Ugric/Uralic studies at the University of Hamburg invites scholars from all fields of linguistics, anthropology and ethnology to take part in a workshop on the ethnolinguistics of the indigenous languages and peoples of Northern Siberia. Any topics from the above mentioned fields are welcome for presentation. Papers investigating cultural effects on grammar are especially appreciated.
The workshop will take place from 4th – 5th of February 2021 at the University of Hamburg (Universität Hamburg) in Hamburg, Germany.
We invite abstracts for a 20-minute presentation (plus 10 minute discussion). Abstracts should not exceed 250 words, excluding references and language examples. The page should be headed only by the title of the paper and not contain any self-identification. Please submit abstracts electronically as an e-mail attachment to the workshop’s email address email@example.com. We kindly ask you to use .docx or .rtf formats in addition to pdf. Please also include the author’s name, affiliation and title of the paper in the body of the accompanying email.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is July 15, 2020
All proposals will be reviewed anonymously.
The official languages of the workshop are English, German and Russian. It is possible, however to present papers in another language. If you choose not to present in English, we kindly ask you to prepare your slides or handouts in English.
