Fellowships

Barbro Klein Fellowship Programme 2021-22, Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study, Uppsala, Sweden. Deadline: 1 October 2020.

The Barbro Klein Fellowship Programme is a newly launched research programme, which intends to advance the study of cultural diversity in a global perspective. The fellowship is open to scholars from across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, with an emphasis on research on cultural and social diversity, cultural heritage and creativity, societal structures and public resistance, and varieties of cultural expressions in local and global perspective.

The programme gives fellows the opportunity to concentrate on their own research interests, free from the teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Fellows are, however, expected to be active members of the scholarly community of the Collegium and to participate in seminars and academic events beyond their own fields of specialization.

The fellowship programme encourages, but is not limited to, applications from talented younger scholars in non-Western countries and of underrepresented gender. At the time of application, the candidate must have held a PhD (or equivalent degree) for at least three years. The application must have a promising track record of independent achievements beyond the post-doctoral level, including significant publications, and be active in international fora.

CFP Nordic Conference on Bilingualism (Sweden)

ConferencesCall 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.

CFP Migration & Integration in Contemporary Societies (Sweden)

ConferencesOrganizing Migration and Integration in Contemporary Societies [OMICS] Conference, 6-9 November, 2019, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden. Deadline for abstracts: 15 May 2019; Deadline for full papers: 9 October 2019.

Growth in international migration has prompted a diversity of efforts to manage global migratory flows as well as improve and streamline the economic, social and political integration of migrants into the host countries. Migration and integration today involve a myriad of actors such as international and regional bodies, state agencies and municipalities, companies, interest groups, community-embedded, civil society organizations as well as individuals, including migrants, who design, implement reproduce, participate in, and replicate individual or collaborative initiatives aimed at facilitating migration and integration. Some efforts are planned and involve years of preparation and the engagement of large coalition of actors; others are ephemeral and ad hoc, emerging from one day to the next only to disappear again quickly. Some efforts aim at facilitating transnational migration others at improving migrants’ health, at supporting migrants’ inclusion into the host countries’ education system or the labour market, at preventing radicalization, or securing migrants’ civic, social and legal inclusion in the new country. From a coordination and organizing perspective, this myriad of actors and activities separated in time and space poses not only far-reaching challenges, but also great opportunities.

These challenges and opportunities demand novel and critical research and interdisciplinary approaches from a range of disciplines, such as anthropology, educational sciences, health sciences, information technology, international studies, law and human rights, management and organization studies, migration studies, political science, social work and sociology. This to rethink how migration shapes and produces inclusion and exclusion around the world – from welfare states in the Global North to the states of the Global South.

CFP Multilingualism Diversity & Democracy (Sweden)

ConferencesCALL FOR PAPER ABSTRACTS: Multilingualism, Diversity and Democracy (MuDD) Conference 2019, Jönköping University, Sweden, 8-10 April 2019. Deadline: 15 January 2019.

An international conference organized by the Communication, Culture and Diversity (CCD) network-based research group, School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University, and sponsored by the Swedish Research Council.

The MuDD2019 international conference will bring together international experts from across the global-North and the global-South with the intent of interrogating the continuing dichotomized situation (in particular in nation-states like Sweden) wherein mono-lingualism and mono-culturalism constitutes the norm and multilingualism and diversity are seen as the exception. MuDD2019 also has the potential to create new knowledge of relevance for present day challenges related to mobility, migration and communication across virtual-physical spaces. It will bring together senior and junior scholars from different research disciplines, including professionals from among other sectors the educational and cultural sectors, thus allowing for theorizing and bridging the dichotomies between monodisciplinary research areas and professional fields.
