GURT 2015

Diversity and Super-Diversity:
Sociocultural Linguistic Perspectives

March 13-15, 2015

The objective of GURT 2015 is to foster and advance a reflection on the
ways in which linguistic and communicative practices are affected by and
contribute to diversity and on the theoretical-methodological challenges
that accounting for such phenomena poses to sociocultural linguistics.

GURT invites papers that explore the connections between diversity and
linguistic/communicative practices. We are particularly (although not
exclusively) interested in the following topics:

- The impact of diversity on sociocultural linguistic theory and research
- The relationships between diversity and hybridity in linguistic and
semiotic practices
- Challenges and responses to linguistic and cultural diversity in
different institutional and non institutional domains
- Diversity and the construction/negotiation of identities
- The use of linguistic and other semiotic resources within new practices
involving diverse communities
- Language policies and diversity issues in the public space
- Diversity of genres, practices and participation frameworks in mediated
- Diversity and time/space scales

Deadline for submission of abstracts: October 15, 2014
