Meeting Description:

Languages in Contact is an international conference that aims at integrating international researchers of language, understood as social human behavior. The conference is organized by the Committee for Philology of Polish Academy of Sciences - Wroclaw Branch, Philological School of Higher Education in Wroclaw, Department of Linguistics of the Ohio State University, USA, and the International Communicology Institute, Washington D.C., USA. Conference organizers wish to address the need of investigating minority speech communities, endangered and vanishing languages, pidgins and creoles, as well as narrowing down the scope of study of cultural practices performed by the means of language and studies through the scope of contact linguistics.

The conference seeks to reach the following goals:

- Developing methodological apparatus of anthropological linguistics and contact linguistics, as well as promoting these innovative disciplines in Poland.
- Integrating the international scientific milieu focused on anthropological linguistics.
