Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

The First 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 sociolinguistics of immigration is a relevant multidisciplinary field of language investigation. The focus of attention is, on the one hand, on how immigration can contribute to phenomena of language spread and/or diaspora, language contact, language variation and change, and on the other hand 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 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 25th to 26th September 2014.The languages of the conference are: English, French and Italian. We are delighted to announce that the plenary speakers will be: Christian Mair (University of Freiburg), Marinette Matthey (University of Grenoble3) and Hans Van de Velde (University of Utrecht).
