Conference Details : The CALA 2020, in February 2020, in Bintulu, Sarawak Land of the Hornbills, Malaysia, will follow on from the success of the CALA 2019 in January 2019, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The CALA 2020 will thus expand on work on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, as well as Asian Language and Society. Here, the world’s prominent Linguistic Anthropologists will gather to discuss work on Linguistics, Anthropology, and Language and Society, in and of Asia, and beyond. With an increased focus on the significance of Asian Language and society, the Annual CALA Conference has emerged at an appropriate time, allowing academics from the West to tap into, and work with, Academia in the East. Scholars in institutions throughout Asia have increasingly affiliated with the CALA network, as have those in Western contexts, to explore the vast possibilities of the Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, academically, and socioculturally, where the CALA network has now well contributed and has significantly boosted research, publications, and academic networks, globally. Themed "Asian Text, Global Context", The CALA 2020 will represent over 300 years of East-West global interaction, communication, and transnationalism. Throughout, symbolisms of Asian ‘texts’ have been significantly emphasized, reinterpreted, contested, and distorted, while employed for cultural and political purpose. Asian texts have become highly representational, authenticating, and legitimizing sociopolitical and cultural devices, and their potency should not be underestimated. Never have these texts shown more significance than in the present, as their intensified use, and their qualities in Asian identities long contested, seek this Linguistic Anthropological exploration.
