Event description
CALA 2020 - Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology in incredible Sarawak,the doorway to Borneo, hosted by the Universiti Putra Malaysia

About this Event

The Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, The CALA 2020, in Bintulu, Sarawak, symbolizes a significant movement forward for Linguistic Anthropology, from the first highly successfully attended CALA, to further problematize current perspectives and praxis in the field.

Conceptualized several years prior to the upcoming conference, the CALA 2020, as with the CALA 1, responds to concerns by those within Linguistics, Anthropology, Sociolinguistics, Sociology, Cultural studies, and Linguistic Anthropology, pertinent to Asia. The CALA 1 has reduced the gap between focus on Asian regions and work by Asian academics, largely contributable to issues of funding and expertise. The CALA 2020 will extend on these efforts, as it will aim to further extend the global networks of Asian Linguistic Anthropology.

The CALA 2020, thus aims to increasingly opportune academics to exchange knowledge, expertise, and valuable Linguistic and Anthropological Data across the world, through the interpersonal and inter-institutional networks the CALA conferences seek to build.

To ground these efforts, the Conference, with Universiti Putra Malaysia at the centre, seeks to network a growing number of institutions globally, to support this much needed project.

The theme for the inaugural CALA is Asian Text, Global Context, a theme pertinent to the current state of many Asian regions and countries vis-a-vis their global analogues.

Universiti Putra Malaysia, hosting the CALA in 2020 in Bintulu, Sarawak, the Land of the Horbills, Malaysia, constitutes one of an interchanging series of annual hosts, and in this way, the CALA global network increases to involve institutions worldwide.

We thus welcome you to the CALA 2020, the Second Annual Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, and to the CALA in general.
