|Meeting Description:||Annual conference focused on the study of linguistic landscapes (LL). The 2015 workshop, to be hosted by the Berkeley Language Center at the University of California, Berkeley, aims to take up questions under the general theme 'Linguistic Landscape: Questioning Boundaries, Opening Spaces.' In particular, the organizers hope to encourage critical inquiry, reflection, and exploration by inviting participants to consider the productive nature of 'boundaries' and 'spaces' on (at least) two levels: first, as real-world phenomena that are observed, inhabited, produced and transgressed by human actors in the LL; and, on the meta-level, as conceptual tools that can help us define, question, and problematize the field.|
