ASA Panel Proposal for the November 2012 meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Please respond by December 30, 2011.
Panel Title: Language, Identity and Empire
I am putting together a panel on the link between language and identity during the 20th century. Some of the themes are gendered rhetoric, English language education and its effect on Spanish-speaking population, cultural nationalism, citizenship, political status, Americanization process, among others.
My paper is about the relationship between language and identity in Puerto Rico from 1898 to 1968 and I am looking for two other panel members. I would like to include papers that link language and identity in other geographical areas in the 20th century (possibly 19th century), for example the U.S. Southwest (border region), migrant/immigrant communities in the East and West Coast, the Mid-West or the South (ex. Florida), or other U.S. territories.
I will look at any relevant proposals.
Please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
# Individual Paper Title (maximum of 15 words per title. Do not begin the title with quotes or other characters.)
# Paper Abstract (maximum of 500 words per abstract)
# Individual Author information including: first name, last name,
affiliation, e-mail address, and one page vitae.
