Call for Papers: 12th Nordic Conference on Bilingualism: X-Disciplinarity in Multilingualism Research, June 10–12, 2020, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden. Deadline: 1 December 2019.
Organizers are inviting proposals for presentations at The 12th Nordic Conference on Bilingualism (NCB12), to be held in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 10–12, 2020. The conference is organized by the Centre for Research on Bilingualism, and the venue will be Campus Frescati, Stockholm University.
The general theme of the conference, “X-Disciplinarity in Multilingualism Research”, will be reflected primarily in the five plenary talks. Submissions for oral presentations, posters, and colloquia that directly or indirectly address the theme are particularly encouraged, although papers that do not are just as welcome!
Submissions may cover (any combination of) sociolinguistic, educational-linguistic, structural-linguistic, psycholinguistic, and neurolinguistic perspectives on multilingualism. Linguistic aspects may include (but are not limited to) phonetic, phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical, semantic, pragmatic, and discourse domains of multilingualism, and submissions may deal with language perception and/or production, as well as spoken, written, and/or signed modes of multilingualism, in contexts of (for example) simultaneous and sequential bilingual development, child and adult first, second, third, or heritage language acquisition, learning, teaching, and use, as well as aspects of language attrition, loss, maintenance, reactivation, and revitalization. We are aiming for a broad representation of (combinations of) methodological approaches, ranging from experimental designs and brain imaging techniques to linguistic anthropology and ethnography.
Please note that the conference is not limited to multilingualism issues related specifically to the Nordic/Scandinavian contexts or languages, nor is it exclusive to researchers active in the Nordic countries/Scandinavia. NCB12 welcomes submissions from anywhere in the world, on any multilingualism context, involving any languages.
