World Conference on Pluricentric Languages (Germany)

5th World conference on pluricentric languages and their non-dominant varieties
Mainz, Germany
July 13-16th 2017

The conference is organised by the Working Group on non-dominant varieties of pluricentric languages (WGDV).

The general theme of the conference is “Models of pluricentricity: Nation, space and language“.

This time the conference will try to focus on the influence of geographic aspects on the modelling of dominant and non-dominant varieties to further advance the understanding of whether geographically contiguous varieties follow the same pathways in their affirmation as own varieties as do geographically separated ones (e.g. European and Brazilian Portuguese).

You find all necessary information on the website of the conference.
All scholars working in this field are invited to submit proposals for papers/workshops by 28 February 2017
