      Dear Colleagues,

      Below is a CFP for a symposium that I am co-coordinating, together with two
      other colleagues, at the 51st International Congress of Americanists, to be
      held next July in Santiago, Chile.  Please redistribute this call to other
      colleagues or pertinent listserves.

      Please feel free to communicate either with me or with Linda Grabner-Coronel
      (grabnerl@...) if you are interested in submitting an abstract for
      our symposium.  The symposium is entitled, "Languages, Cultures, Ideologies
      and Identities in the Andes."

      If your research is not related to indigenous languages/identities of the
      Andes, but you might be interested in presenting at this conference,
      definitely see the 51ICA website (URL listed below in the CFP) for a list of
      other symposia being held at the conference.

      Regards, Serafin M. Coronel-Molina GSE, University of Pennsylvania

      Santiago, Chile, July 14-18, 2003

      The Andean region, long known as a nexus of cultures and languages bound up
      in a colonizing context, suffers asymmetrical relationships of political,
      economic, sociocultural and linguistic power.  The primary focus of this
      symposium is on the interface between cultures, languages and ideologies;
      its objective is to explore the ways in which such interfaces and power
      dynamics have affected the linguistic and social identities of not only
      indigenous groups but of the wider societies as a whole, affecting national,
      regional, ethnic and gendered identity formation.  What do people do with
      their repertoire of languages and identities?  How do they constitute their
      multiple ethnic, linguistic and national identities?  How do linguistic,
      political and social ideologies mediate cultural patterning in terms of
      ethnic or gendered identities? These are some of the questions we would like
      to address in this symposium, by examining Andean identities and ideologies
      from interdisciplinary perspectives such as sociolinguistic/ethnolinguistic,
      cultural/anthropological (including linguistic anthropology), literary,
      political, social semiotic, educational, and historical.

      The ultimate goal of the symposium is to analyze the sociocultural and
      sociolinguistic impacts of colonialism and postcolonialism in a variety of
      contexts, historical and contemporary, concentrating on the interaction
      between dominant and dominated languages and their functions in identity
      construction.  Proposed presentations should consider the use and
      representation of language, gender or ethnicity as symbols and constituents
      of individual, group, societal and national identities. Proposals should
      also represent previously unpublished work, as we are planning to select the
      best articles to publish in a book.  Some possible topics are listed below;
      other themes that are related to any of these areas are also welcome.


      *  Ideologies of Linguistic and Social Differentiation *  Language and
      Political Economy *  Language Attitudes and Identities *  Language
      Policy/Planning from Multiple Perspectives *  Languages and Cultures in
      Contact *  Bilingualism, Multilingualism and Other Forms of Linguistic
      Heteroglossia *  Linguistic Rights and Indigenous Languages *  Language
      Shift, Maintenance and Revitalization *  Indigenous Languages in Mass Media,
      the Internet and Multimedia *  Rural and Urban Identities *  Transnational
      Nature of Languages and Identities *  Effects of Globalization on Language,
      Culture and Identity *  Language, Gender, and Race/Ethnicity *  Reproduction
      of Social and Linguistic Discrimination and Inequality *  Mestizaje and
      Socio-Political Ideologies in Local, National and Global Contexts

      Given the interrelatedness and fluidity of all aspects of the questions we
      wish to consider, it is neither easy nor necessarily desirable to present a
      single perspective.  Therefore, novel perspectives and approaches to these
      or related topics are encouraged, and may include interactions among two or
      more themes.  Particular approaches might include any one or a combination
      of the following, or may take other forms that presenters find relevant and
      useful:  a) narratives and testimonies; b) case studies; c) literary,
      sociopolitical, linguistic anthropological and semiotic analyses of language
      and culture; d) educational efforts; e) historical and contemporary
      approaches; f) social, literary or linguistic constructions of
      national/ethnic/gendered identities.  Individual presentations should not
      exceed 20 minutes in length (8-10 typewritten pages, double spaced).


      Proposals should be no longer than 600 words, and may be in any of the four
      official conference languages:  Spanish, English, Portuguese or French.  It
      should be composed of two parts:

      (1)  a cover page with the title of the presentation, the presenter's name,
      affiliation, preferred mailing address, telephone and fax if available,
      e-mail address, and any special audio-visual equipment that may be needed
      for the presentation.  If the paper being presented was co- authored, the
      presenter's name should be listed first, and any co-authors listed
      alphabetically afterwards.  Only the presenter's contact information is

      (2)  the 600-word proposal with the title of the presentation, but no other
      identifying information.

      Proposal submissions should be received no later than December 30, 2002.  
      Please plan your submission timing accordingly, especially if you are
      sending your abstract from abroad, and submit presentation proposals to the
      symposium coordinators as follows:

      *  If you presently reside in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa or Asia,
      send your proposal to Serafín M. Coronel- Molina at the address listed at
      the beginning of this announcement.

      *  Residents of Canada, the USA, Europe and Australia send your proposals to
      Linda L. Grabner-Coronel at the address listed at the beginning of this

      Proposals may be submitted via regular surface mail, email or fax.  If you
      choose to submit your abstract via email, please send it as a Word
      attachment so that the above guidelines may still be followed.  Early
      submission of abstracts is strongly encouraged, to expedite the decision
      making process. Submitters will be notified by email no later than the end
      of January 2003 of their acceptance in the symposium; submitters who do not
      have access to email will be notified by regular surface mail or fax.  For
      more information, contact Serafín M. Coronel-Molina at scoronel@...
