Meeting Description:

Over the past decades, research has focused on both individual and societal bilingualism. This conference proposes to explore issues related to language choice and language attitudes, as well as language policy and management in the various educational and public spheres. In view of the global status of English and the fact that it is often one of the languages in the bilingual's linguistic repertoire, an important focus of this conference is the emergence of varieties of English in bilingual and multilingual settings.

This conference aims to have an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas with researchers and students from different linguistic backgrounds.
