FAQs

Question: Why a central Institution?

Several institutions have convened with plans to collaborate for CALA, and have expressed concern that the CALA should be kept in The Asia, but networked with all other bodies in Linguistic Anthropology. However, the CALA plans to work with several other Institutions globally, and is currently negotiating with those bodies.

Question: Won’t the CALA interrupt the aims of other well established organizations in Anthropology or Linguistic Anthropology?

The CALA has no intention to do this, but to organize and develop the CALA so to support all Asian, and global, Linguistic Anthropologists, and organizations in Linguistic Anthropology. Our role as an annual conference is to solidify and advance efforts by the current prominent and indeed crucial organizations focusing on Linguistic Anthropology, and related fields.

Question: Where will the CALA be held?

The CALA location will change every year, and will thus be hosted by a new Institution for each respective year.

Question: Will special issues emerge from the CALA?

The CALA will publish strong work presented at the CALA, and is currently discussing with several key publications to effect this. Consequently, the CALA aims to support and facilitate a rise in academic quality so to increasingly opportune academics and researchers to develop, and hence to become more competent to contribute their work to publications.
