Several institutions have convened with plans to collaborate for COMELA, and have expressed concern that the COMELA should be kept in TheMediterranean and Europe, but networked with all other bodies in Linguistic Anthropology. However, the COMELA plans to work with several other Institutions globally, and is currently negotiating with those bodies.
The COMELA has no intention to do this, but to organize and develop the COMELA so to support all Mediterranean and European, and global, Linguistic Anthropologists, and organizations in Linguistic Anthropology. Our role as an annual conference is to solidify and advance efforts by the current prominent and indeed crucial organizations focusing on Linguistic Anthropology, and related fields.
The COMELA location will change every year, and will thus be hosted by a new Institution for each respective year.
The COMELA will publish strong work presented at the COMELA, and is currently discussing with several key publications to effect this. Consequently, the COMELA aims to support and facilitate a rise in academic quality so to increasingly opportune academics and researchers to develop, and hence to become more competent to contribute their work to publications.
All queries can be directed to the Head of Communications, for the COMELA 2020.
