Calls for Proposals and Papers

Call for Seminar Proposals
42nd German Studies Association Conference
September 27-30, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA

The GSA is now accepting seminar proposals for the 2018 conference, September 27-30, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA. The 42nd 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 scholars from different disciplines and at different career stages.

Seminars may enable extended discussion of a recent academic publication; the exploration of a promising new research topic; engagement with pre-circulated papers; an opportunity to debate the work of scholars with different approaches; the coming together of groups of scholars seeking to develop an anthology; or the in-depth discussion of a political or public policy issue, novel, film, poem, artwork, or musical piece.

The application process has two steps. You are invited to submit a preliminary proposal that includes the title and a 150-word description of your seminar by November 13, 2017. The committee will then provide suggestions and assistance for the final submission which is due by December 13, 2017. Find further details and a link to submit a seminar proposal here.



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. (Because the manuscript will be blind reviewed, identifying information should be on the cover sheet only, and not appear in the manuscript)
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."
