Call for papers for the conference on Global approaches to multilingualism and standardisation. Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge, 16-18 April 2018. Deadline: 30 November 2017.
Proposals are welcomed from Early Career Researchers on any of the conference themes, or anything else that relates to standard languages and language standardization. Proposals are particularly encouraged regarding linguistic contexts which comparatively have received little attention from work on language standardization, or which consider theoretical or methodological issues.
This conference is being organised as part of the AHRC-funded project Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals, Transforming Societies (MEITS).
Thanks to the generosity of the Historical Sociolinguistics Research and Training Program, funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO), we hope to make four awards of up to €375 per person to cover accommodation and travel expenses.
