Linguistic Anthropology Conference: Language, Mobility and Belonging
What is the role played by language in the conceptualisation and regulation of belonging in contexts of migration and global movement? Do we still belong to speech communities? How do migration and increased global movement affect existing language ideologies and norms? And how do these call into question existing structures of socioeconomic mobility? In four panels of presentations, we will explore linguistic practices and discourses circulating in communities all over the world from Saipan to Canada; Iceland to South Africa.
We are pleased to announce that we are opening Saturday's half-day session (25.01.2017) to the public for free attendance!
