Diversity of writing systems: embracing multiple perspectives
12th International Workshop of the Association for Written Language and 
Literacy

Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge
Tuesday 26 – Thursday 28 March 2019

Second call for papers

The Association of Written Language and Literacy’s twelfth gathering 
(AWLL12), organized in conjunction with the Faculty of Classics, 
University of Cambridge, will focus on the wealth of diversity within 
the world’s historical and contemporary writing systems.  The conference 
sets out to offer an opportunity for exchange between a wide range of 
scholars interested in writing systems and written language, in order to 
foster greater mutual understanding of their multiple perspectives on 
the typological, structural, historical, sociocultural, technological, 
and individual variety present within writing systems.  Abstracts are 
therefore welcome from researchers working on reading and writing within 
any academic discipline, including, but not limited to, linguistics, 
psychology, archaeology, sociology, education and literacy, technology, 
digital humanities, and computer science.  PhD students and early-career 
researchers are also especially encouraged to apply.

Key issues to be addressed include:
•	What fundamental principles underlie the structure and function of the 
world’s historical and contemporary writing systems?  Is a single 
unified typology of writing systems possible or are separate taxonomies 
preferable?
•	What linguistic and psychological processes are at work in the 
adaptation of one writing system to another?  How are these affected by 
the cultural and social context of the adaptation?
•	What linguistic, psychological, cultural and social, and technological 
factors bring about diversity within writing systems?  How do such 
factors influence literacy acquisition and shape the use of writing?
•	How can studying the development of historical writing systems enhance 
our understanding of contemporary writing systems?  How can contemporary 
research on reading and writing contribute to the study of historical 
writing systems?
•	How are the world’s writing systems likely to develop in the future?  
What principles should guide orthography development for as yet 
unwritten languages?
The 2.5-day programme will include two keynote lectures, a symposium 
focusing on research into ancient Mediterranean and Chinese writing 
systems at Cambridge, oral and poster presentations, and a panel 
discussion.

Keynote speakers
Sonali Nag, University of Oxford (Research interests: literacy and 
language development and the relationship between writing systems and 
learning, particularly in South and South-East Asian languages).
Kathryn Piquette, University College London (Research interests: 
Egyptian and Near Eastern writing and art, and the development and 
application of advanced imaging techniques for the elucidation of 
‘visual’ culture from the wider ancient world and beyond).

Local organisers
Robert Crellin and Anna Judson (University of Cambridge, U.K.)
Programme committee
Lynne Cahill (University of Sussex, U.K.), Robert Crellin (University of 
Cambridge, U.K.), Terry Joyce (Tama University, Japan), Anna Judson

Abstract submission
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted as a PDF 
attachment to [log in to unmask] by September 30th 2018. Please
