Full Title: The Second International Symposium on Chinese Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
Location: Milan, Italy
Start Date: 14-Dec-2017 - 16-Dec-2017
Contact: Giorgio Francesco Arcodia
Meeting URL: http://isoctal.wixsite.com/2017
Meeting Description:

The first ISOCTAL was held in 2015 at Newcastle University (https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/isoctal2015/conferenceinformation/), and it was a successful and fruitful conference; we hope we can turn it into a regular biennial meeting.

ISOCTAL-2 hopes to feature papers on many topics in Chinese linguistics, understood broadly as covering all Sinitic languages, e.g. Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese and all regional varieties, including syntax, morphology, phonetics and phonology, semantics, language variation and sociolinguistic studies, diachronic change, language contact, typology and comparative studies, child language acquisition, second language acquisition and teaching, applications of translation and code-switching to pedagogy.

There will be a thematic session on child language acquisition with emphasis on research that has cross-linguistic implications and empirical work that refers to Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese and other languages spoken in Chinese communities.

The language of the conference is English.

Invited Speakers:

Walter Bisang (Johannes Gutenberg-University)
Yanping Dong (Guangdong University of Foreign Studies)
Waltraud Paul (CNRS)
Peng Zhou (Tsinghua University)

Full Title: Multimodality and Diversity in Chinese Interaction

Location: Belfast, Ireland

Start Date: 16-Jul-2017 - 21-Jul-2017

Contact: Xiaoting Li

Meeting URL: http://ipra.ua.ac.be/main.aspx?c=.CONFERENCE15&n=1516

Meeting Description: Multimodality and Diversity in Chinese Interaction is a panel at the 15th International Pragmatics Conference.

Panel organizers:

Xiaoting Li (University of Alberta)
Wei Zhang (City University of Hong Kong)

Fueled by the advent of the video technology in research, issues of multimodality and embodied interaction have found recent attention in linguistic research informed by conversation analysis and interactional linguistics. Interaction-oriented approaches have enriched linguistics not only with regard to data and methods, but also in view of concepts and theoretical understandings. However, most of the research on multimodality in interaction has been based on Indo-European languages. Research on multimodality in Chinese interaction is still relatively scarce (see Li, 2014). Previous work on Chinese spoken discourse has mainly focused on lexico-syntactic constructions and their function in Chinese conversation (e.g., Zhang & Fang, 1998; Wu, 2004, 2005; Luke, 2000, 2005, 2012). Li (2013, 2014) explores the role of lexico-syntax, prosody, bodily movements and their interaction in turn organization in Chinese face-to-face conversation, and shows that resources of different modalities are relevant to the construction of Chinese interaction.

Further, Chinese is a language with great internal diversity. It is commonly accepted that Chinese has seven mutually unintelligible varieties including Mandarin, Cantonese, Min, Wu, Xiang, Gan, and Hakka. The linguistic structure of each variety may provide affordances for different methods of constructing interaction. Within the study of Chinese interaction, the research has been predominantly on the standard variety, Mandarin. We know next to nothing about how speakers of other Chinese dialects use multimodal resources to construct social action in interaction.

This panel brings together research from conversation analysis, interactional linguistics, gesture studies, and multimodal analysis to explore the function of multimodal resources in forming situated activities in interaction conducted in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects. Papers in the panel aim to analyze how interactants use linguistic resources (lexico-syntax, prosody, etc.) situated in a larger semiotic context in interdependence with visual signals, such as e.g. gaze, gestures, and body posture in constructing talk and action in the diverse Chinese (dialects) interaction.

Specifically, this panel intends to discuss the following questions:

- What are the multimodal resources that are related to the construction of interaction in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects?
- What is the role of each type of multimodal resource (lexico-syntax, phonetics/prosody, gaze, gesture, posture, action, etc.) in interaction in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects?
- How do the resources of different modalities interact (i.e., mutually elaborate or play off each other) in constructing turns, actions, and activities in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects?

Contact: Hsuan-Ying Ho

Meeting URL: http://goo.gl/h5i74l

Meeting Description: Chinese is the most spoken language in the world, and the study of Chinese has become internationally fashionable. In order to develop primary research capabilities and professional training in Chinese language pedagogy, the Fifth NTU Postgraduate Conference on Teaching Chinese as a Second Language will be held on March 25, 2017 at National Taiwan University (NTU).

Organized by postgraduate students from the Graduate Program of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language at NTU, this one-day conference hopes to bring together postgraduate students interested in the filed an intellectually stimulating and friendly platform for the exchange of ideas. Presenters of the conference will have the possibility to publish their research in the Proceedings of the Fifth NTU Postgraduate Conference on Teaching Chinese as a Second Language.

Areas of research can include Chinese teaching method, Chinese linguistics, second language acquisition, etc., couched in any theoretical framework.

29th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics
Short Title: NACCL-29
Location: New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA
Start Date: 16-Jun-2017 - 18-Jun-2017
Contact: Richard Simmons
Meeting URL: http://naccl.rutgers.edu
Meeting Description: The 29th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL-29) will be held at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, June 16-18, 2017.

The theme of the conference: Perspectives on the History, Geography, and Sociolinguistics of Chinese and Chinese Dialects

The many varieties of Chinese have always existed in a state of dynamic variation and change. Their various grammatical features and states, including phonology, lexicon, morphology, and syntax, have followed the natural tendency of languages to change. The changes have been influenced and shaped by historical events, population movements, geographical proximity and distance, and any number of social and cultural forces. The dialect of an individual speaker results from the interplay of these various influences and forces and often continues to respond to them as well as broadcast its own influence within a speech community and across time into the future. As such, a linguistic description is merely a snapshot of one linguistic type in a given time and place, whether it be experimentally derived, obtained instrumentally, or recorded through traditional means. Through the examination and comparison of linguistic data, linguistic descriptions, and the individual linguistic snapshots they represent, from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives, we can discover a great deal about the background to language variety, the motivations for language change, as well as reason for current linguistic states and the shape of dialects in points both past and present.
