Meeting Description:

The focus of attention of the 2nd International Conference of the Sociolinguistics of Immigration is on the epistemological and methodological continuities and discontinuities in the sociolinguistics of immigration. Several new researches and approaches have begun to emerge in the last few years: translingualism, polylanguaging, truncated repertoires, crossing, metrolingualism.

Two main processes have contributed to this change: the epistemological orientation towards postmodernist and critical social theories within sociolinguistics as well as applied linguistics, linguistic anthropology and related disciplines and globalization.

The aim is to explore these research orientations, whilst also aiming to critically discuss these and any (dis)continuities and/or potential links between ''old'' and ''new'' orientations.
