The symposium will bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines who are interested in sharing their expertise about linguistic attitudes and in discussing and comparing their empirical and theoretical findings. We aim to reach a synergy of perspectives and approaches that emphasize the role of language attitudes in the face of situations that emerge in intergroup encounters involving Spanish, Portuguese, related languages, and different linguistic practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Language attitudes and ideologies
- Language attitudes and perceptions
- Language attitudes in education
