We are delighted to invite you to the Language Policy Forum 2018, taking place on 
Thursday 31 May and Friday 1 June 2018, at Sheffield Hallam University.

The two-day conference forms part of our recently launched BAAL Language Policy 
special interest group (www.langpol.ac.uk), and our theme will be 'Language policy in 
the age of diversity: Dilemmas and hopes'. Presentations could be based on original 
research, or comprise scholarly summative insights into a body of prior research. We 
also welcome presentations about teaching different aspects of language policy in 
higher education. Our plenary speakers will be Prof. Marilyn Martin-Jones (University 
of Birmingham) and Prof. Tony Liddicoat (University of Warwick).

This is a low-fee conference (no fee at all for a range of people with limited 
means), aiming for maximum inclusivity. For more information on the conference, 
including venue, registration, and fees, please visit 

We look forward to discussing language policy with you in Sheffield. And please pass 
this on widely in your own networks and to anyone you think may be interested!

All the best,
Dave (on behalf of the committee)
