Meeting Description:

II Symposium on linguistic attitudes toward Spanish, Portuguese and related languages- LASPRL 2019

LASPRL 2019 seeks to bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines who are interested in sharing their expertise on linguistic attitudes, and discussing and comparing their extensive empirical and theoretical findings, so as to accomplish a synergy of perspectives and approaches that emphasize the role of language attitude practices in dealing with demanding situations emerging in intergroup encounters involving Spanish, Portuguese and the related language they are in contact with in the 21st Century.

The majority of the world’s population resides in contexts that are becoming increasingly multi-ethnic, multilingual, and multi-cultural. Many Spanish and Portuguese societies coexist with indigenous communities as it occurs in many Latin America countries; other groups, instead, have chosen to live in the diaspora where, as immigrants, they are in contact with other cultures and/ or languages around the world.

A major goal of this conference is to bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines who are interested in sharing their expertise on linguistic attitudes and in discussing and comparing their extensive empirical and theoretical findings, so as to accomplish a synergy of perspectives and approaches that emphasize the role of language attitude practices in dealing with demanding situations emerging in intergroup encounters involving Spanish, Portuguese and the related language they are in contact with in the 21st Century.

Keynote Speakers:

Prof. Kathryn Campbell-Kibler, The Ohio State University
Prof. Juan González Martínez, Universitat de Girona, Spain
Prof Livia Oushiro, Universidade de Campinas, Brazil
