Polyglot Conference Cholula 2020 Proposals
CALL FOR PAPERS

At this year’s conference, we will have three separate tracks for papers and presentations, related to our overall theme of "Languages of Mexico”, honoring our host culture and its region.

I. Languages, Dialects and Cultures of Mexico

II. The Language Warrior

III. Other Language-related Topics


Track I. Dialects and Cultures of Mexico

In this track, we would like to celebrate the host country its languages, dialects and cultures. You could explore topics ranging from historic, classical topics related to Mexico to its modern trends or venture into Mexico's linguistic diversity.

If you have a paper that you passionately feel comes under this topic please submit it here.


Track II. The Language Warrior

In this track, we would like to hear about ways you stand up for languages and how to give back to society through language and cultural activities. This would include topics from organising language projects, events and initiatives to translation and interpreting that provide tangible help to others.

If you have a paper that you passionately feel comes under this topic please submit it here.

Track III. Other Language-related Topics

At the Polyglot Conference, we like to keep some space available to people with genuinely interesting topics that do not fit the overall themes so easily. You may feel free to submit something you feel strongly about, or something you feel will be of interest to our live audience in Cholula or indeed to the wider audience upon video release on the Internet.
