CFP Languaging in Times of Change (UK)

ConferencesCall for proposals: Languaging in Times of Change, 26-27 September, 2019, University of Stirling, UK. Deadline: 1 April 2019.

‘Languaging’ refers to all types and modes of discourse and communication. The conference creates a space for discussions across disciplinary boundaries, as scholars come together to share research on communicative practices and ideologies in contexts of work, education, family, the arts, migration, leisure, politics, the digital world, and beyond. Organizers particularly welcome proposals for presentations from scholars whose research area is not solely or principally in linguistics. They also encourage presentations which report innovative research methodologies.

Individual papers and colloquia will be situated broadly within one of the following themes: Translanguaging, Advocacy and Activism, Superdiversity, Time/Space, Digital Worlds, Voice, Literacies.
