CFP: Global Call for Research Papers within the Context of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages

IYIL2019 Global Call for Research Papers

UNESCO has launched a Global Call for Research Papers within the context of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages. As the deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 March 2019, researchers and practitioners from all over the world specializing in different fields and subject areas are strongly encouraged to submit in order to contribute to the preservation, revitalization and promotion of indigenous languages at the national, regional and international level.

More information available here concerning the key areas that should be covered:


Submissions can be already published as well as unpublished papers, in English, French and Spanish, based on desk-type research, literature reviews, interviews of experts and opinion leaders (including diplomats, civil society and others involved in the SDG negotiation process), key messages, outcomes, evidence-based case studies and existing solutions, statistical analyses (if data are available), etc. The submitted papers (10 pages, 340 words per page including references), together with a short biography of each author and 3-5 keywords should be made via the online form below or sent to us by email: indigenous.languages@unesco.org.

Submissions will be evaluated by a peer review board appointed by UNESCO in consultation with Members of the Steering Committee of IYIL 2019, and will include leading linguists, indigenous researchers and experts in different fields. By the end of 2019, the research produced is intended to contribute to the production of the World Report of Languages 2019, and to provide evidence-based information to practitioners and policy-makers around the world, with the long-term objective of mainstreaming language issues within a broader agenda.

Suggestions for PhD programs for a career in Language Policy?

Hello all! I am looking for suggestions for PhD programs that would help lead me to a career in Language Policy, both as an academic and as a professional. I am particularly interested in Language Policy for "developing" nations. I have experience working in and researching language-in-education in Haiti. I have a BA in Linguistics and an MA in International Development, where I wrote my thesis on Trends Towards Mother-Tongue Education in Haiti for Development Actors. I was the only person in my MA program interested in Language Policy, and now I find myself a little lost as to what the next step could be. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
