Call for papers
	
VALS-ASLA Symposium
Communicating in professional multilingual environment
14th - 16th September 2000
in Lugano, Switzerland
Deadline for proposals: February 20th.
	
The symposium's theme connects with the following issues: how does
multilingualism show itself in communication practices characterizing
departments, companies or institutions, where speakers of different
languages regularly or occasionally get in touch?
	
Those issues linked with multilingualism management at work become more
and more important in contemporary society. By raising them we will try to
go beyond a dichotomic thought that would lead to choose between "all
english" and the local language. In order to go beyond those symplifying
solutions, we have to consider different aspects of multilingual communication at
work, from various points of view (linguistic politics, legal aspect,
interaction analysis...) and in different contexts. The aim of this symposium is to
contribute to a better comprehension of those situations.
	
This symposium lies thus between two research traditions: on the one
hand, the traditions that concerns situations of plurilingual communication,
where code-switching and language choices - among others - are described,
whether they are linked with linguistic convergence or divergence; on the other
hand, the traditions that focuses on specificities of communication at
work, both in public services and in private companies.
	
We would like to connect those two fields of investigation in the
symposium. Therefore we ask for papers that present both empirical data
and a theoretical reflection on different modalities of multilingual
communication observed in socioprofessional places.
