Advancing Research in Phonology via Articulatory Phonology 

Call for participation of students/recent Ph.D.s in NSF-funded workshop on Articulatory Phonology, July 2019 

Graduate students and recent Ph.D. awardees (past 2 years) are invited to apply for one of 10 fully funded positions to attend a two-day workshop entitled “Advancing Research in Phonology via Articulatory Phonology (ARP_AP).” Phonological theory is in a state of flux, with competing conceptualizations and assessments of the range of phenomena to be accounted for. Alongside the several strands of phonological theory derived from generative grammar has been the development of Articulatory Phonology. This theory, created by Cathe Browman and Louis Goldstein, has, over its 35 year history, addressed the central issues of time and the discrete-continuous dichotomy in linguistic forms. This is an auspicious time to examine the progress in the theory and to evaluate new directions.

This workshop will bring together 30 experts in phonological theory and 10 students, chosen from an open application, to formulate new projects that are especially appropriate for further development of Articulatory Phonology and its relation to presently explored theories of phonology. 

Arrival will be on Thursday, 11 July 2019, with the workshop occurring all day Friday and Saturday morning, 12-13 July. Accommodations will be available for an extra night (13 July) for those whose travel would not allow them to leave in the afternoon, or for those who would like to continue informal discussions and/or enjoy the neighboring Asilomar State Beach. The workshop will include the 10 students along with 30 researchers. After plenary discussions of background in AP, the attendees will split into 3 working groups addressing specific aspects of the theory. The goals are to advance the theory itself, broaden its application to larger questions, and to assess the relative merits of AP and other theories of phonology. 

The workshop will be held at Asilomar Conference Grounds, Monterrey, CA.
