CfP: Conference on Indigenous Languages at IIT Madras [Feb 13-14]: Submit by Jan 10: Expired

About the conference

Indian society is heterogeneous in ethnic and linguistic composition. Literate societies view language as an
autonomous system with its distinct history and tradition. A country’s geography of multilingualism provides an
apt lens to view communication patterns based on blurred linguistic boundaries, language identity, social attitude,
communication choices and intergroup and intragroup communication patterns.
It is pertinent that we create awareness about such subtleties through academic interventions towards sustainable multilingualism. With this as the central idea we are pleased to announce that the Centre for Endangered Language Studies (IIT Patna) and the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Patna jointly with the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Madras will host the 2nd International Conference on Indigenous Languages (ICOIL- 2).
Abstracts are being invited for oral and poster presentations on substantial, original and unpublished research with particular focus on indigenous and endangered languages and linguistic applications like morphosyntax and discourse pragmatics of linguistic constructions relevant to South Asian languages.
