Meeting Description:

First International Conference on Language Contact and Language Change in Times of Globalization.

First International Conference on Language Contact in Times of Globalization
University of Groningen, September 28-30, 2006


The past decade has witnessed a growing interest in the study of linguistic effects of language contact. Due to rapid globalization and increased migration, people are ever more exposed to other languages, both related and unrelated. The aim of the Groningen conference is to explore the linguistic effects of globalization and migration in societies all over the world. We particularly invite papers adressing the conference theme, but in order to put these issues in a broader historical and theoretical perspective, we also welcome papers on other current issues in the study of language contact and language change. Plenary speakers will be Prof.dr. Pieter Muysken (Radboud University Nijmegen), Dr. Ricardo Otheguy (City University of New York) and Prof.dr. Kurt Braunmüller, (Universität Hamburg).


For preliminary registration, send an e-mail message to lctglet.rug.nl. If you wish to present a paper, please provide us with a provisional title. Once you have registered, you will receive the first circular containing information on conference themes, plenary speakers, submission of abstracts, travel to Groningen and accommodation. For more information you may also visit our website: http://odur.let.rug.nl/~dejonge/invest/lctg/

Conference registration is 100 Euro until May 1, 2006. Late or on-site registration will be 120 Euro. Early registration for students is 50 euro, late registration 60 euro. Please bring some kind of identification to prove that you are a student.


Scholars are invited to submit abstracts for 40-minute papers (including 10 minutes of discussion time). Deadline for abstracts is February 1, 2006. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by March 1. If you require earlier notification, let us know, and we will send you our reply at an earlier date (though not before January 1, 2006).
