TitelVoices Throughout the Ages: Expression, Development, and Authenticity in the German Language (The 2006 GDGSA Conference)
Beschreibung"Throughout the course of history, humans have striven to adequately represent themselves. The capability of expression, or the lack thereof, has been a hallmark of identity, not just for individuals, but for entire cultures. The voice, both in a literal and metaphorical sense, plays a prominent role as a means of self-pronouncement in literature, linguistics, and second language acquisition. This conference seeks to explore the function of the voice in all aspects of the German language.

Texts speak to us, and the ways in which they speak are as myriad as the world itself. Due to the nearly limitless freedom afforded to an individual during the process of creation, literary and philosophical writings take many forms and have functioned as outlets for personal articulation for more than two millennia. The uniqueness of texts provides for a means of distinctive expression ranging from the voice of Socrates in Plato's dialogues to the inner monologue of Arthur Schnitzler's Leutnant Gustl to the emergence of the voice of the Other in post-colonial literature.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Oral Tradition;
Narrative Theory;
Minority Voices;
Music & Art;

Because it provides the means of producing sound, the voice is the primary instrument of language, allowing human interaction while simultaneously driving linguistic innovation in the perpetual process of transmission and reception. Furthermore, the voice acts as a means of identity among speakers, converging and diverging as people come together and drift apart. With the diverse places and situations in which it has been spoken, the linguistic examination of the German language presents a good opportunity to deepen our understanding of the voice and its role in human communication.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Sound Change;
Language Contact;
Language and Immigration;
Language and Identity;
Language and Politics;
Language Death;

In the foreign-language classroom, the establishment and assertion of the voice is an essential process in the language learning process. Through attempts to convey and facilitate meaning, the teacher strives to improve the learner's language ability in all areas. However, classroom communication is more than merely a sum of verbal interchanges. Depending on an array of variables such as cultural background, learning styles, and anxiety level, the voice identifies teacher and learner roles and relationships.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Subjectivity (Learner Identity);
Teacher Identity;
Native/Non-Native Speaker Identity;
Intersection of Identity with Language Behavior;
Teacher/Learner Variables (Gender, Race, Age, etc.);
Relationships (Power, Student-Student, Student-Teacher);
