CLARIN is a pan-European initiative which aims to build a research 
infrastructure for language resources integrating numerous tools and 
resources in a distributed architecture, and which will respond to the 
needs of researchers across the humanities and social sciences. CLARIN 
is being built on open standards, but also with a recognition that 
standards and guidelines are only one part of a complex jigsaw which 
needs to be assembled to create reliable, durable and high quality 
services. The Text Encoding Initiative is a long-standing community 
which develops guidelines for the encoding of scholarly texts in XML, 
and works with associated technologies. This workshop aims to bring 
together those involved in these two sets of activities to share 
experiences and knowledge, and to find ways to work together 
productively in the next generation of infrastructure services.

The organizing committee of this workshop invite proposals for 
presentations on topics which link together CLARIN and the TEI, including:
- the role of the TEI in developing standards for CLARIN services,
- technical issues in the integration of TEI-conformant resources or 
TEI-aware tools in CLARIN services,
- barriers and problems with the deployment and linking of CLARIN and 
TEI technologies,
- training, awareness and advocacy activities.
Presenters will be asked not to simply present an overview of their 
work, but to focus on precisely how, why (or why not) TEI formats, 
guidelines and technologies are being deployed, and to go into some 
technical detail to do this.

It is hoped that this will be only the start of promoting dialogue and 
collaboration between CLARIN and the TEI at many levels. One result 
would be an improved dialogue about the use of the TEI in higher-level 
initiatives to develop standards for the CLARIN architecture, but 
another would be enhanced engagement directly with the TEI community of 
developers and researchers in the many centres and institutions related 

Format of proposals

Proposals should be between 500 and 1000 words, in a text document, and 
should be sent to martin.wynne at it.ox.ac.uk. Proposals should contain a 
title and the names and affiliations of all authors.

International Departments of English Association (IDEA) is pleased to
announce: In Medias Res: Uses of Narrative in English Language Studies, an
international interdisciplinary conference for language teachers,
translators and literary scholars to be held in Kyrenia in collaboration
with Near East University, on September 26th and 27th, 2013. The symposium
aims to discuss the narrative aspect of English Language Teaching in
conjunction with Literary and Translation Studies. The narrative of
“participating” in language studies is often non-linear, disjointed and
disrupted. Every attempt to “read”, “teach,” “learn” or to
“translate” has a different trajectory, with multiple points of
departure, multiple story-lines and multiple potential endings. Individual
narratives converge with preceding ones and are shaped by other
participators, teachers, learners, researchers and writers. Each scholarly
intersection results in an alternative narrative that would not otherwise be
possible. In this sense, every textual beginning in language studies, be it
in person, in the classroom or on paper, inevitably starts from a/the

By focusing on the issue of narrative, we seek to provide a forum for the
investigation of the various dimensions of language teaching and learning
practices within different cultural and social contexts. We also invite
reflection on the ways in which narrative is addressed in various literary
and cultural texts, past and present.

By focusing this issue on identity, Inquire seeks to provide a forum for the
investigation The conference aims to bring together scholars from all
disciplines and intellectual orientations. Submissions may include, but are
not limited to, an exploration of the following topics: narratology –
communication studies - linguistics - subjecthood  – semantics –
pragmatics –  speech acts – translation theory – language learning
theories – language teaching methodology – teaching strategies and
styles –innovative approaches – blended-hybrid instruction – discourse
analysis –constructivism –  sociolinguistics- semiotics –
