Question: Why a central Institution?

Several institutions have convened with plans to collaborate for COOLA, and have expressed concern that the COOLA should be kept in The Oceania, but networked with all other bodies in Linguistic Anthropology. However, the COOLA plans to work with several other Institutions globally, and is currently negotiating with those bodies.

Question: Won’t the COOLA interrupt the aims of other well established organizations in Anthropology or Linguistic Anthropology?

The COOLA has no intention to do this, but to organize and develop the COOLA so to support all Oceanian, 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.

Question: Where will the COOLA be held?

The COOLA location will change every year, and will thus be hosted by a new Institution for each respective year.

Question: Will special issues emerge from the COOLA?

The COOLA will publish strong work presented at the COOLA, and is currently discussing with several key publications to effect this. Consequently, the COOLA 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.

Question: Who do we communicate with for queries, for the COOLA 1?

All queries can be directed to the email connected to the hosting Institution.

Question: Can anyone host a future COOLA?

Yes, the COOLA accepts proposals from institutions wishing to host a future COOLA. Please contact COOLA at info@coola.one with an introductory proposal, and the COOLA secretariat will mediate the proposal.
