Meeting Description:

The 3rd LINEE+ conference is an established biannual event that provides an influential international forum for discussion on theory and practice in research of multilingualism and wider issues of linguistic and cultural diversity. It builds on the successes of 1st LINEE (2010) and 2nd LINEE (2012) Conferences held in Dubrovnik by continuous rethinking of linguistic and cultural diversity and extending the debates in new, interdisciplinary directions.

The conference aims to attract a wide ranging mix of international researchers of various disciplinary backgrounds, policy makers, language professionals and other stakeholders in order to share their research insights, discuss diversity from various disciplinary approaches (linguistics, anthropology, psychology, economy, cultural studies, history, philosophy, etc.), and to propose new interdisciplinary perspectives in research on linguistic and cultural diversity.

Call for Papers:

We invite the submission of abstracts for the 3rd LINEE+ International Conference: Linguistic and Cultural Diversity in Space and Time.

The focus of the conference will be placed on five specific themes:

1. Historical multilingualism - Lessons from the past
2. Commodification of languages - Liaisons dangereuses
3. Multilingualism and material life - 'Talking' things
4. The dark side of multilingualism - Social visions and divisions
5. Multilingual brains and minds - Joys and fears?.

The organizers will also accept a wide range of other topics related to our broad main theme (e.g. on language and education, new literacies, translation, language policy, etc.).

Abstract submission deadline: 31 December 2013
Notification of acceptance by: 1 February 2014

Further details regarding abstract submission and registration are available on the conference website: http://linee.co.nf/.
