Linguistic and Sociocultural Contact Zones
23-24 May 2003

Our invited speakers will be:

Professor Peter Auer, Albert-Ludwigs-Universit´┐Żt Freiburg

The Conference Aims:

The aim of the conference is to investigate the different kinds of
linguistic and sociocultural contacts brought about by transnational
migrations in the contemporary world. The theoretical and
methodological focus is on various forms of integration between on the
one hand sociolinguistic studies and studies in the sociology of
language and on the other hand the general area of cultural studies:
studies of cultural and social identities, of multiculturality,
cultural hybridity and identity politics in complex societies.

workshops, and details for abstract submissions, please see our
