Meeting Description:

The 1st International Conference on the Sociolinguistics of Immigration is a two-day international conference which aims at bringing together scholars working on both the empirical and theoretical challenges posed to sociolinguistics by recent global migratory phenomena.

The conference is organized by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Modern Cultures of the University of Turin, Italy, and it will take place in Rapallo, Genoa from 25-26 September 2014. The languages of the conference are: English, French and Italian.

The plenary speakers will be: Christian Mair (University of Freiburg), Marinette Matthey (University of Grenoble) and Hans Van de Velde (University of Utrecht).

Registration for the conference starts on 10 May 2014 and closes on 28 July 2014.

Call for Papers:

The sociolinguistics of immigration is a relevant multidisciplinary field of language investigation. The focus of attention is how immigration can contribute to phenomena of language spread and/or diaspora, language contact, language variation and change, and also the development of mixed, hybrid patterns of language use and identities.

The topics above will be mainly (though not exclusively) examined from the following perspectives of analysis: contact linguistics, bilingualism/multilingualism, language variation and change and language/dialect development.

The abstract submission period opens on 10 January 2014. Abstracts can be submitted until 10 March 2014 and sent as a word attachment to slimig2014.lingueunito.it. Confirmation of acceptance will be on 10 May 2014.
