Meeting Description:

The conference aims to create a space for the discussion of new and ongoing research and projects on language variation in the context of global movement and language contact. We will explore the role of language in spatial mobility across geographical and cultural borders in order to reach some conclusions on how new linguistic practices challenge existing norms and categories of belonging.

Call for Papers:

We invite the submission of papers on original and unpublished studies including, but not limited to the following topics:
- language contact issues in migration contexts and their impact on language change
- language, identity and belonging
- language and mobility
- translation and translanguaging in migration and diasporic contexts
- language variation and change in migration and diasporic contexts
- all aspects of language variation and change in New Varieties of English in migration contexts
- synchronic/diachronic analyses/perspectives in the domain of LVC and migration
- interdisciplinary studies covering different registers and genres

Contributions should focus on results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis on current approaches, methods, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, sociolinguistic or corpus-based. Send your abstract (max 400 words) and biodata (max 100 words) to: by 31 August 2021.
