Language and Culture are increasingly intertwined both domestically and in the global arena, and they are assuming greater political importance. There is an important cooperative dimension to this nexus, however, assertion of linguistic and cultural rights is often a source of tension. Paper proposals are welcomed that approach the language/culture relationship from either side and which have either a domestic or international emphasis. Please send your short VITA and paper abstract to the Vice President of the Colloquium in charge of organizing panels for the section on 'Language and Culture':
