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.

LPP2022 will be a space for Canadian and international researchers to share their research about oppressed language rights and literacy practices in Canada and other parts of the world. This year’s theme (non-exclusive) will bring together researchers interested in the impact of language policy on the minoritization of language speakers and the oppression of their linguistic human rights. LPP2022 will have a hybrid (virtual and in-person) format. We hope that this format will maximize the participation of underfunded educators and researchers who come from communities whose languages have been affected by colonial language policies. We will highlight research that attempts to deconstruct colonial views of language education, which advocate forms of toxic monolingualism that not only target minoritized students' mother tongues but that put their lives in danger, as has been the case with Canadian residential schools. The three plenary speakers, Owennatekha (Brian Maracle), Abduweli Ayup, and Jaffer Sheyholislami, are scholars who come from linguistically oppressed communities and who have been studying language issues in those communities for years.

Call for Papers:

Submissions will close on February 28, 2022 (Monday, at 11pm E.T. Canada).
