Call for papers: Language Ideologies, Identity and Authenticity in Minoritised Greek-speaking Communities, Online Workshop – 20 January 2021. Deadline: 16 October 2020.
Organisers: Matthew John Hadodo, University of Pittsburgh; Elena Ioannidou, University of Cyprus; Petros Karatsareas, University of Westminster.
Recent years have seen an increased interest in the role language plays among minoritised Greek-speaking communities (that is, contexts in which Greek is not the majority language of society). Research has explored a range of issues including the reproductions, transformations and contestations of language ideologies in such contexts, which in many cases divert from dominant discourses about language and identity, and the interplay of language ideologies with formed linguistic repertoires and social outcomes. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers investigating these issues with the aim of exploring points of both convergence and divergence across communities in different parts of the world, and with distinct sociohistorical trajectories of minoritisation, linguistic repertoires, experiences and processes of identity formation.
