Meeting Description:

The conference 'Multilingual Urban Space: Policy, Identity, Education' is an annual event held every year within the framework of the April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development, organized by the National Research University Higher School of Economics.

Rapid processes of globalization, internationalization of commerce, on the one hand and lack of economic opportunities, as well as local and international conflicts on the other, have intensified the movement of population across the globe.

The primary goal of the conference is to examine the factors that contribute to the linguistic diversity and the theoretical developments in the dynamics of language/culture contact taking place within and between different ethnic groups in the city-space.

Call for Papers:

The conference “Multilingual urban space: policy, identity, education” is held every year within the framework of the “April international conference on economic and social development”, organized by the National Research University Higher School of Economics.
Rapid processes of globalization, internationalization of commerce, on the one hand and lack of economic opportunities as well as local and international conflicts on the other, have intensified the movement of population across the globe.

A number of recent studies (see, for example, Blommaert, 2003, Rampton et al,
2015; Taylor-Leech and Liddicoat, 2014; Smackam and Heinrich, 2018 among others) have tried to capture and explain the dynamic multilingual character of cities from sociolinguistic, historic, educational and socio-political standpoints.

The primary goal of the conference is to examine the factors that contribute to the linguistic diversity and the theoretical developments in the dynamics of language/culture contact taking place within and between different ethnic groups in the city-space.

We expect that this conference will bring scholars together, working in various fields of linguistics to discuss issues related (but not limited) to language in the city, such as:

Language policy/planning
Linguistic landscape
Multilingualism
Education
Language maintenance/shift
Minority language (in)visibility
Identity negotiation/construction
Language ideologies


Invited Plenary Speakers:
1. Li Wei (University College London). Plenary talk title 'The Idea of Translanguaging: connecting sociolinguistics with neuroscience of bilingualism'.
2. Marilena Karyolemou (University of Cyprus). Plenary talk title 'An Oral Language in an Urban Setting or Can Cypriot Arabic be saved?'
3. TBA

The conference will be held OFFLINE (or in a hybrid format) at the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE), Moscow, Russia.

We invite abstracts of no more than 500 words (including references) till 1 March, 2022. Abstracts should be sent to urbanlinguisticsgmail.com
