Dear friends and colleagues

As you probably know I’m running the International Congress of Linguists in Cape Town 2018, with the theme “The Dynamics of Language”.  (The congress includes the 2018 meetings of the Linguistics and Applied Language Studies societies of South Africa; and welcomes members of all other societies).  It’s a big all-week affair in the first week of July 2018, covering a wide range of topics in contemporary Linguistics and Applied Linguistics.   A number of workshops cover themes and languages of the African continent.  The call for papers opened last week (paper, workshops and poster sessions) and closes on 24 July 2017.   Please take a look at the website and share this link within your academic networks.  And do encourage your PhD students to attend and participate.  I look forward to receiving abstracts from you (via our website) and welcoming you to the southern tip of Africa.

With very best wishes

Raj Mesthrie

Call for abstracts:
Deadline: 24 July
