Organized by Anaïd Donabedian (Inalco UMR SeDyL) and Pollet Samvelian (Sorbonne-Nouvelle UMR CERMI)
This webinar has been organized following the cancellation for public health reasons of the study day dedicated to this area that was to take place on 6th October 2020 at Inalco. It is intended to continue on a regular basis for an unlimited duration.
Calendar: Monthly, 2nd Monday of each month, 16.30-18.00 Paris time (GMT 3:30-5.00 PM) starting from 14th December 2020.
Place/Interface: Zoom webinar (with registration)
Structure of sessions:
Each session will involve an invited speaker, and a person selected for expertise on the subject who will conduct a discussion with the speaker.
-Invited speaker’s presentation (40-45 mins)
-Discussion between speaker and expert (10-20 mins)
-Questions and responses with the audience (conducted using the discussion function of Zoom or by oral communication)
Submissions process (speakers):
Presentations will be selected based on a one-page summary specifying the theoretical framework, the issue, the methodology, and the principal bibliographical references.
As far as possible, since the seminar brings together linguists with different theoretical backgrounds, it is desirable to make the presentation accessible without specific knowledge of a particular theoretical framework.
After evaluation, if the presentation is accepted, a scholar with expertise in the relevant field is selected to take part in the discussion, in agreement with the speaker and the organisers.
J – 21 [?21 days before the presentation]: The speaker uploads the summary of the presentation to the website (this may or may not be identical to the original submission).
J – 7 [?7 days before the presentation]: The speaker sends the organizers a handout or slides (possibly provisional), as well as anything else they would like to share with the other participant in the discussion (readings, maps, empirical data, etc.). These, which are important to ensure the quality of the discussion, will not be made available to the audience in advance of the session unless the speaker so wishes.
Registration process (audience):
Each session will be announced (with a summary) on the website and the LACIM Facebook page 15 days at the latest before the session, with a link for registration for the Zoom session.
Those who have already taken part in one of the sessions will be added to an electronic mailing list and/or a Facebook group, by means of which they will receive the announcements for the subsequent sessions.
