We invite proposals for papers which reflect any topic related to the language management framework and particularly research methodology, the special focus of the symposium. Questions for discussion include (but are not limited to): Which methods enable the researcher observe the various phases of (simple) management? Do all phases of management need to be directly observable? What are the advantages and disadvantages of elicited data and naturally-occurring data? What is the explicative value of language management summaries elicited in interviews? How is it possible to study the interplay of simple and organized management? How can the relations between linguistic, communicative and sociocultural management be captured?
