Language, Translation, and Migration Conference and Public Summit. University of Warwick, UK, 24-26 May 2018. Deadline: 15 February 2018.
The modern world is interconnected, mobile, multilingual and diverse. Linguistic diversity however does not indicate linguistic equality. On the contrary, the linguistically diverse nature of contemporary societies has implications for social justice, with potentially differential access to resources and the public sphere. In this context the politics of language are a significant factor for the promotion of social cohesion. Research has repeatedly shown that linguistic and ethnic minorities are disadvantaged in interaction with institutions. This two-day conference brings together scholars and practitioners from different professional and disciplinary backgrounds to discuss the role of language as a key factor in globalised societies.
The conference will be followed by a public summit focusing on the relationship between language, translation, social mobility and social cohesion. Participants will include scholars from the Humanities and Social Sciences as well as representatives from the voluntary sector, the creative industries, non-governmental organisations and policy makers.
We invite contributions which encourage interdisciplinary dialogue between scholars and practitioners in sociolinguistics and applied linguistics, translation studies, modern languages, sociology, health, legal studies and other areas in which language behaviour and language politics play a key role both as research objects and professional practices.
