Meeting Description:

This online workshop will bring together scholars with expertise in Romance morphosyntactic variation, working at different interfaces (generative, sociolinguistics, dialectology, and language contact), alongside scholars and stakeholders working on language ideologies, language policy/planning and language documentation.

The purpose of the online workshop is to draw together interdisciplinary perspectives towards Romance grammatical variation in the context of migration, multilingualism, contact, language oppression and/or other social and material contextual factors in relation to Romance linguistic communities and/or their language practices.

We are particularly interested in receiving contributions which draw together, or offer comparative or interdisciplinary perspectives on, questions of morphosyntactic variation, language contact and language ideologies in relation to non-standard(ized), contested, oppressed or minoritized Romance or Romance-related varieties.

The workshop, which forms part of the project The Grammar of Judeo-Spanish (British Academy/Leverhulme Trust grant no. SRG1819\191358), will comprise general sessions as well a day dedicated to research on Judeo-Spanish and associated varieties of Romance (including but not limited to Judeo-Romance, Balkan Romance and non-territorial Romance varieties).
