Meeting Description:

Within the framework of the Third Conference on Language Contact in
Times of Globalization (LCTG3), a thematic panel is organized on
'Metalinguistic Discourse on Language Contact and Globalization'. The
panel particularly focuses on the following questions:

- Which aspects of globalization surface in metalinguistic discourse? What
are the 'limits of awareness' concerning contact phenomena?
- To what degree is metalinguistic discourse an index of prescriptive
linguistic practices?
- What is the role of purism and related linguistic practices in
standardization and re-standardization procedures?
- What is the influence of purism and related practices on language
change? Are there methodologically sound procedures for measuring such
an influence?
- How is globalization itself discursively constructed? Which role do
language ideologies play in this construction?
- How can we delimit the process (or the concept) of globalization
historically? When does globalization 'start'? When do people start to talk
about it, and how does this discourse evolve?
- Is globalization itself a global (discursive) phenomenon?
- What are the analogies and the differences between the contemporary
contact-under-'globalization' situation and other historical cases (e.g., of
vehicular languages such as French, Spanish, Greek koine, etc.)?

Call For Papers

The organizers of the thematic panel welcome particularly corpus-based
and methodologically innovative approaches to issues such as those listed
in the session description.

Proposals for 30-minute presentations (including discussion), comprising a
500-word (maximum) abstract, should be submitted electronically to the
organizers of the thematic panel by November 15, 2010.
