Language, Linguistics, Speech,Translation, TESOL and Related Fields

Looking for a conference in your area of interest? Looking for a conference or meeting in some exotic location you haven't experienced yet? Or how about...

...a professional meeting somewhere close to home?

I'm guessing that this site might have something you'll like, from gatherings centered around linguistics, censorship, tourism, technology, literacy and almost everything else. And look at the locations; from Singapore to Finland, Florida to Greece, you can find it all at this site - http://www.conferencealerts.com/language.htm

If you click on the links, you can find full information including how to submit proposals for a presentation as well as the relevant registration details.

Here's an example of what you can find on this website; Gossip, gospel, and governance: orality in Europe 1400-1700. Doesn't that sound like a fun conference?

The conference aims to explore the spoken word and its power through the themes of street life, reading aloud, teaching and learning, speeches, incantation, performance, parley, women's words.

You can see more details on this particular conference here - http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/sd/academic/sass/about/humanities/history/groups/memgroup/

I'd encourage you to bookmark this page and stay posted on coming conferences. You never know what you might run into.

I love gatherings like this, they energize me to keep slogging though the difficult times and remind me that many are alongside me one way or another; plus I love making more connections and making friends with people all across the world.

It is good to remember that we are all always learning. And it is always more fun to learn together. We can learn as much from the past as from the present.

Let me know what it is about English that you find confounding, infuriating or endlessly intriguing.

Listen, read and speak. Make your new language your own.

My best to you as you make your way through this intriguing , constantly shifting linguistic landscape.
