Lee B. Ledford scholarships of $5,405 each from the Appalachian College Association to support full-time research in summer 2012 on local dialects of English as part of the new East Tennessee Dialect Project. Their faculty mentor, Dr. Andrea L. Menz, Assistant Professor of German and Linguistics and Director of the Interdisciplinary Linguistics Program at C-N, has created the East Tennessee Dialect Project on the model of similar projects elsewhere (e.g. the North Carolina Language and Life Project at NCSU) to document and analyze current and historical characteristics of East Tennessee dialects and to educate and advocate about issues of linguistic variation. Dr. Menz, Ms. Aldridge, and Ms. Sipple plan to spend this summer compiling a bibliography of previous research, conducting dialect fieldwork with speakers of all ages in Jefferson County and surrounding areas, analyzing linguistic structures in existing and new recordings, and developing a website to educate the public about linguistic variation in general and dialects of East Tennessee in particular.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="libraries/tiny_mce/tiny_mce/plugins/imagemanager/files/ETDP_CN_cropped.jpg" alt="" width="297" height="257" /></p> http://www.cn.edu/news?view=277 http://www.cn.edu/news?view=277 Tue, 28 Feb 2012 13:27:23 -0500 2nd Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Language <p align="center"><strong>Schedule</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>&nbsp;The 2<sup>nd</sup> Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Language</strong></p> <p align="center">Stokely Memorial Building, Small Cafeteria</p> <p align="center">Carson-Newman College</p> <p align="center">Jefferson City, TN</p> <p align="center">Thursday, March 15, 2012</p> <p><a href="libraries/tiny_mce/tiny_mce/plugins/filemanager/files/PLWL/2012ISLschedule.pdf">Printable Schedule</a></p> <p><a href="libraries/tiny_mce/tiny_mce/plugins/filemanager/files/2010-2011_Updated_Campus_Map.pdf">Campus Map</a></p> <p><strong>8:00 &ndash; Registration</strong></p> <p><strong>8:25 &ndash; 8:30 - Welcome</strong></p> <p><strong>8:30 &ndash; 9:00am&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p> <p><em>Wakhi Subject Markers: Agreement or Pronominal Clitics?</em></p> <p>Todd Hughes, University of Florida</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>9:00 &ndash; 10:00am</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Panel: Language, Identity, and Resistance in Latin American Literature</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>&ldquo;Yo soy pachuco. &iquest;Y qu&eacute;?&rdquo;: Chicano Cal&oacute; as a Weapon of Resistance and Reaffirmation of Identitic Autonomy </em></p> <p>Janelle Coleman, University of Tennessee, Knoxville</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Puerto Rican Identity with a Language Twist </em></p> <p>Lisa Ybonne Figuerora, University of Tennessee, Knoxville</p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>The Language of Nature as a Mechanism of Resistance and Inclusion in Los papeles de Silvio V&iacute;ctor</em></p> <p>Andrew M.
