The COMELA 2020, The Conference on Mediterranean and European Linguistic Anthropology 2020

Call for Abstracts - The COMELA 2020, The Conference on Mediterranean and European Linguistic Anthropology 2020

Following the growth of The Global Network for Linguistic Anthropologywe announce The COMELA 2020, The Conference on Mediterranean and European Linguistic Anthropology 2020.
Purpose and Structure - Over 500 scholars globally will gather to present papers and engage in progressive discussion on the Linguistic Anthropology, Language and Society, and related fields, of The Mediterranean and Europe. The COMELA is fully Non-Profit, where all publishing with the JOMELA (its scholarly journal) is free, as the COMELA refuses to implement a pay to publish system. The COMELA sources funding/grants to assist people in impeded economic positions, who require funding to access the COMELA Conference, and display strong ability in their work. COMELA proceedings will be indexed with SCOPUS and will contribute to ranked and cited publications for all those accepted to present, as well as publishing papers in Top Tier Journal Publication Special Issues.
Location - American University of Greece, Athens, Greece
Date - September 2-5, 2020
Theme - Bounded languages ... Unbounded, a theme highly pertinent to Mediterranean and European regions and countries in the current climate of transnationalism. The COMELA 2020 theme, “Bounded languages … Unbounded,” encapsulates the ongoing struggle throughout Mediterranean and European regions. The tension between demarcation and legitimization of languages, language ideologies, and language identities, is entering an era where new modes of interactivity require language communities with roles superordinate to the past. Flexible citizenship now operates within, and not only across, language communities, to unbind languages, yet to create new boundaries never seen throughout history. The COMELA 2020 invites work on shifting boundedness of Language Communities of the Mediterranean and Europe. Submissions should acknowledge and describe processes of language shape, change, and ideology, pertinent to social, cultural, and political histories and futures, of Mediterranean and European regions, or work by those working in Mediterranean and European regions.
Keynote and Plenary Speakers - Jan Blommaert and other prominent Keynote Speakers

  • Taylor and Francis Global Publishers (Official Partners)
