Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Call Deadline: 30-Sep-2018

Meeting Description:

The conference is open to language-related basic research, applied research and interdisciplinary research. Contributions may relate to current topics as well as historical topics; they may cover sociolinguistic issues as well as issues of language systems as long as the relevance for European society is made clear.

Speakers who have already confirmed their participation:

Dr. Liudmila Bosova (Moscow): Characteristic Features of American, British and Russian Political Discourse with Relevance to Europe
Prof. Dr. Rosa Maria Calafat Vila (Palma): La ideología lingüística en la Europa del siglo XVIII: antecedente de la actualidad?
Prof. Dr. Joachim Grzega (Donauwörth/Eichstätt): New Aspects of the Relation between Language and Peace
Dr. Bea Klüsener (Wuppertal/Eichstätt): 200 Years of Frankenstein – European Dimensions
Dr. Michael Lynch (Edingburgh): Evidence for the Bilingual Option in Foreign Language Teaching
Prof. Dr. Magdalena Szulc (Lublin): Das Konzept “Patriotismus” in europäischen Printmedien
Prof. Dr. Sture Ureland (Mannheim): Mehrsprachigkeit an Minderheitenschulen in Europa

Call for Papers:

Everyone is warmly invited to suggest a paper for the conference. Each topic should be truly European in the sense that it somehow relates to all geo-cultural areas (north, west, south, east [with or without Russia]). If this cannot be provided by one individual researcher, colleagues may also team up to approach different languages with the same methodology. We can help you find team members. It seems appropriate to declare the European languages with large numbers of speakers our conference languages. However, the largest number of colleagues will probably be reached when the talk is given in English.

As far as accommodation and transportation are concerned, we will think of convenient ways for you, once we have a rough number of participants. I will also try to get some funding for the conference.

Therefore, I would like to ask you to write me briefly, as soon as possible:

(1) whether you want to participate without a paper or have a topic to suggest, including
(1a) the question(s) you are going to deal with in your paper
(1b) the method(s) you are going to use
(1c) the languages you are going to cover
(1d) the language you are going to present the talk in
(1e) whether you are going to give the talk alone or in a team (name the team members and their affiliations)
(2) whether you need team members (and for which countries or languages)

Please send your information to by 30 September 2018.

Again, we plan to publish the conference papers in the Journal for EuroLinguistiX. Due to the positive experiences with last year's conference, there shall again be a section in which experts and laypersons discuss with each other. It is our aim that not only the academic, but also the general public becomes more aware of Eurolinguistic work. The topics for the public discussion shall be taken from the papers presented at the “conference proper”.
