Meeting Description:

The Multidisciplinary Approaches in Language Policy and Planning (LPP) conference brings scholars from different disciplines (language education, anthropology, political studies, social sciences, economics, linguistics, and more) whose work centers on language policy and planning at different levels: local, national and/or international. LPP2020 will be co-hosted by Dr. Mela Sarkar and Dr. Angelica Galante at McGill University in Montréal, Canada. Montréal is the largest city in Québec, the only province in Canada where French is the official language. The city, however, is linguistically, culturally and ethnically diverse, a fact that contributes to the city's multilingual nature. As such, LPP2020 will be introducing the Plurilingual Experience: we will accept submissions of abstracts written in English or French (Canada's official languages) but papers can be delivered in any language, and presenters will be able to translanguage if they wish.

We look forward to seeing you at LPP2020!
