Meeting Description:

The aim of this panel is to provide a platform for the discussion of recent research relating to language policy and planning of the six living Celtic languages. The recently published results of the 2011 Census for England and Wales have revealed that although the total population of Wales has increased, both the number and the percentage of Welsh speakers have fallen down to 562,000 and 19% respectively. The census results for Ireland and Scotland will be published later this year. Research is welcome on a wide range of topics, including the possible consequences/future challenges in the area of language policy and planning of Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Cornish and Breton. We are particularly interested in discussions addressing the complexity of language maintenance and revitalization efforts, the situation of the Celtic languages in urban settings and challenges faced by researchers in the field of minority languages especially.

Call for Papers:

The Department of Celtic Languages and Literatures at the Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland is pleased to invite submissions for a special Celtic Studies Session organized as part of the 44th Poznań Linguistic Meeting. The organizers invite established scholars as well as young researchers working in the field of the sociolinguistics of the Celtic languages to submit paper proposals (max. 300 words plus bibliography) for talks of 20 minutes plus ten minutes of discussion.
