Call for papers

Colloquium on Elite Bilingualism and Middle Class Mobility at the 3rd
International Symposium on Bilingualism at the University of the West
of England, Bristol (18 - 20 April 2001)


Elite Bilingualism - Contemporary Middle Class Mobility in Europe

Conveners:
Helmut Daller (UWE, Bristol) and Ullrich Kockel (UWE, Bristol)
Email: Helmut.Dalleruwe.ac.uk, ullrich.kockeluwe.ac.uk

The linguistic construction of Europe: migrant elites and the cultural 
functions of English.

The focus of this colloquium is on the linguistic identity of Europe and its 
emerging multilingual elite. The main questions are:

� is there a new "itinerant" culture of highly skilled migrants in Europe?
� what role does multilingualism play in the construction of the ethnic 
identity of this new mobile middle class?
� to what extent is this new middle class an agent of a new European identity?
� what is the role of English in the process of constructing Europe's 
linguistic identity?

We are looking for papers on these questions from scholars from a wide range 
of disciplines like Linguistics/ Sociolinguistics, Anthropology, Cultural 
Geography and History. A final panel discussion will be held after the paper 
session(s) to discuss the questions raised above.
