Calls for Proposals and Papers

Call for Seminar Proposals
41st German Studies Association Conference
October 5-8, 2017 in Atlanta, GA

The GSA is now accepting seminar proposals for the 2017 conference, October 5-8, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. The 41st GSA Conference will continue to host a series of seminars in addition to its regular conference sessions and roundtables. Seminars meet for all three days of the conference. They explore new avenues of academic exchange and foster extended discussion, rigorous intellectual debate, and intensified networking. Seminars are typically proposed and led by two to three convenors and they consist of approximately 12 to 20 participants, including representation from different disciplines, graduate students, and faculty of different ranks. Seminar proposers should design topics that will suit the three-day structure of the conference and also submit a list of potential applicants while providing enough room for other GSA members to participate.

The application process has two steps. You are invited to submit a preliminary proposal that includes the title and a 100-word description of your seminar by November 21, 2016. The committee will then provide suggestions and assistance for the final submission which is due by December 8, 2016. Find further details and a link to submit a seminar proposal here. 

Please note: The submission process for "traditional" papers, sessions, and roundtables, will open on January 5, 2017, and the deadline to submit these proposals is February 15, 2017. Details are available here


Call for Proposals
Symposium: Deutsch als Fremdsprache: Erfahrungen, Praxis, Zukunft
February 24–25, 2017, University of Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR, Campus Rio Piedras

Wir laden DeutschlehrerInnen von Universitäten, Sprachschulen und Highschools ein. Wir bitten um kurze Vorschläge (abstracts), nicht länger als eine halbe Seite. Einsendungen bitte an UPRDeutsch@gmail.com. Proposal deadline: December 7, 2016. See More▼

Wir suchen konkrete Beispiele aus der eigenen Arbeit im Deutschunterricht: Was oder welche Themen haben sich bei euch in der Praxis bewährt? Welche Empfehlungen habe ich, um den Deutschunterricht interessanter zu machen? Was können wir tun, um Deutsch als Fremdsprache zu fördern und/oder auszubauen? Was sind die dringensten Probleme in meinem Department/Programm und welche Lösungsmöglichkeiten gibt es? Welche Fehler sind in der Vergangenheit gemacht worden?

Wir wollen uns austauschen und diskutieren. Deshalb sind wir nicht an langen Research Papers interessiert. Damit genug Zeit für einen regen Austausch und Diskussionen bleibt, sollten Beiträge und Präsentationen nicht länger als 15 Minuten dauern. Die Anzahl der TeilnehmerInnen ist begrenzt.

Puerto Rico ist Commonwealth der U.S.A.; es gelten die entsprechenden Gesetze und Einreisebestimmungen (kein Reisepass oder Visa für U.S. Bürger erforderlich).

Applied Language Learning Call for Submissions

Applied Language Learning provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information on instructional methods and techniques, curriculum and materials development, assessment of needs within the profession, testing and evaluation, and implications and applications of research from related fields such as linguistics, education, communications, psychology, and the social sciences. Articles that describe innovative and successful practice and methods and/or report educational research or experimentation are welcome.

Submissions are welcome at any point. Manuscripts received by 31 January will be considered for the Spring issue and by 31 July for the Fall issue of the journal. See More▼

Submitted manuscripts should be prepared according to the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). The manuscripts should be:
• Within 5,000 words (excluding references, charts, notes, etc.)
• Submitted electronically via email attached as a MS Word document
• Double-line spaced throughout, including notes, references, and tables, with margins of one inch on all four sides, using 10 or 12-point Times New Roman font
• Accompanied by a 150-200 word abstract and a cover sheet containing the manuscript title, name, address, telephone numbers, email address, and full names and institutions of each author.

Check past issues of the journal, which have detailed information on manuscript preparation.

All manuscripts should be electronically submitted to the Editor. Visit the Defense Language Institute website and use the dropdown menu to select "Academic Journal."
