Meeting Description:

After a successful first edition in Groningen, we are happy to announce the second conference of the Sociolinguistics Circle, which will be hosted by Ghent University. The Sociolinguistics Circle is an initiative by a group of scholars working in the Low Countries (see below). The aim of the one-day conference is to bring together students and researchers of language variation, sociolinguistics and social dynamics of language with a connection to the Low Countries. Particular emphasis is put on student participation: the conference is open to researchers of all levels.
