Meeting Description:

The next conference of the International Association of Language and Social Psychology, ICLASP 13, will be held between 20-23 June 2012, in the charming city of Ljouwert/Leeuwarden, the capital of bilingual Fryslân in The Netherlands. The conference will be held in conjunction with Mercator, the European Research Center on Multilingualism and Language Learning, which is part of the Fryske Akademy. Further details of keynote speakers and other aspects of the conference are at http://www.mercator-research.eu and http://www.ialsp.org.

This conference will bring together scholars from different disciplines who explore language and communication in their social contexts using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The focus is mainly on aspects such as identities, perceptions, attitudes, beliefs, values, motivations, norms, behaviour, policies and so on in their individual and intergroup contexts. Topics covered in previous conferences include language and health communication; language learning; bilingualism & multilingualism; language and discrimination, interpersonal, intercultural, interethnic and intergroup communication; nonverbal communication; miscommunication and communication failure; discourse analysis; language and ageing; language and mass media; language and humour; language and gender; language and authority; language and tourism; language and technology; language and security; endangered, regional and minority languages; language planning; and so on.

It promises to be a superb conference with high profile keynotes (see http://www.mercator-research.eu) including Claire Kramsch (USA), Durk Gorter & Jasone Cenoz (Spain), Adam Jaworski (UK), Crispin Thurlow (USA), Anne Pauwels (UK), Bernadette Watson (Australia), Thomas Holtgrave (USA), Jan Pieter van de Oudenhoven & Karin van der Zee (The Netherlands).

We look forward to meeting you there!

Best wishes,
Prof Itesh Sachdev & Drs Cor van der Meer (Conference Co-Chairs)
