The Dutch Annual Linguistics Day 2021 (DALD2021) will be held on Friday 29 January 2021. Because of the COVID-19 rules and guidelines, we have decided to keep the DALD fully online for the first time. But that doesn’t make it any less fun! The DALD will remain a day on which we can see and speak to all our colleagues in the Netherlands and Flanders and inform each other about current research in linguistics and applied linguistics. We are therefore organising a very varied programme with lectures, pecha kuchas, digital coffee moments, the Taalgala, and a surprising keynote presentation.
Submit Abstract for Lecture or Pecha Kucha
Any AVT or Anéla member wishing to give a lecture at the GTD can submit an abstract of up to 170 words via the website of the AVT from October 7 till November 15 2020. You can choose between a classic 20-minute lecture + 5-minute question period or a pecha kucha presentation of up to 6 minutes and 40 seconds + questions (total duration: 10 minutes). A ‘pecha kucha’ is a short, flashy presentation: you use (a maximum of) 20 slides (with as many images and as few words as possible), each showing 20 seconds (see also here, here en here for more info and examples).
– When submitting your abstract, you indicate whether you wish to hold a regular lecture or a pecha kucha. Given the online format, we recommend pecha kuchas as the standard.
– If you are planning or willing to give your lecture or pecha kucha in English, you can indicate this with an English title and summary instead of a Dutch one.
– You may submit a maximum of 2 abstracts (1 as first author, 1 as co-author).
– You can choose to give your lecture or pecha kucha “live” via the online platform, or you can record and send your presentation in advance. In that case, we ask you to send your presentation at least one week in advance.
If you do not receive confirmation of receipt of your abstract, please contact Jenneke van der Wal (email@example.com). If there are more speakers than places in the programme, the most recently received abstracts will be included as ‘alternates’.
The programme booklet (including abstracts) will appear on the AVT website in January and be sent by e-mail to all registered participants (at that time) and all AVT and Anéla members.
What is the Dutch Annual Linguistics Day?
The DALD is a joint initiative of the Association for General Lingusitics (AVT), Association for Applied Linguistics (Anéla) and the National Linguistics Research School (LOT). The DALD brings together the AVT TIN (Linguistics in the Netherlands) day, the Anéla TTiN (Applied Linguistics in the Netherlands) day and the Taalgala (Language Gala), where the AVT/Anéla Dissertation Prize and the LOT popularisation prize are awarded. The venue will be ‘online’ for the first time this year.
AVT members can submit a written version of their presentation after the DALD for Linguistics in the Netherlands, an internationally read and peer-reviewed series published by Benjamins. Linguistics in the Netherlands has a short publication process: the LIN volume will be published no longer than six months after completion of the review procedure. A new advantage is that every LIN-bundle is accessible open access via Benjamins’ website two years after its publication.
Anéla members can submit a written version of their presentation for The Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics (DuJAL, recently fully open access).
Procedures for registration will be announced at a later date.
